It isn’t helped by the fact that many of the best-known approaches to characterisation are over simplistic and based on pop psychology. 

Using a completely new set of tools based on the very latest psychological research, this one-day workshop will provide you with the understanding you need to create compelling and psychologically-credible characters.
