Abstract

This section of the report aims to provide the reader with a description of two workshops that were developed and conducted to test the creativity techniques that were taught by Dr Cris de Groot. The author decided that the traditional Medicine Wheel would be used, however, he was concerned that the technique may be too abstract or bizarre for the participants. Therefore, using his understanding of the “creative perspectives‿ that the Wheel provided and of the traditional prompts he adapted the central prompt words into prompt sentences that would to guide the participants in the creative thinking process. The two workshops followed the advice of the trainer regarding the number of participants (despite larger interest) and restricted the membership of each workshop to a maximum of twelve.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
