The following day, April 7, 2015, Tina and Raluca held a joint bilingual workshop (Romanian/English) for educators, trainers, social workers, psychologists and reintegration experts at the Rahova prison just outside of Bucharest. The workshop titled Storyboarding and more Creativity Development Tools was held from 10 to 12:30 and presented some insights on the importance of creativity and play in coping with life. It included research by Stuart Brown on play histories of prisoners in maximum security prisons and how to use creativity for positive social impact. The participants got to engage in storyboarding and mind mapping as tools to help open up their own communication as well as applications for such techniques in therapy with the prisoners in their ward.
The 2-day collaboration was made possible by special invitation and permission by the Director of Human Resources Department for the ANP, Chief Commissioner Gheorghe Iftinca; Chief Commissioner Denis Darie, governor of Bucharest Rahova Prison and Dr. Gheorghe Popa, the Rector of the Romanian Police Academy as well as the orchestrator of the project, Lt. Colonel Raluca Stuparu.
