Looking to revitalize your practice? Do you have clients who are stuck or resistant, repeating the same patterns over and over? Tired of using the same interventions, session after session?
Attend this weekend workshop packed with non-stop action, demonstrations and ideas that will have you furiously taking notes as your clinical toolbox overflows with creative, effective interventions you can use immediately! What’s more, you’ll leave inspired to create even more!
Learn new innovative interventions to help even your most resistant clients become unstuck and express themselves. Your weekend will consist of creative, interactive, hands-on training that will re-energize your work. You will gain fresh new creative arts strategies and approaches that you can use immediately to engage even your most difficult and challenging clients.
This workshop is for clinicians, supervisors, and any direct service staff with an interest in learning about or building their knowledge of creative intervantions. Participants will engage in experiential exercises through art, drama, narrative therapy, music, poetry, and body-centered therapies. You will utilize a working case conceptualization to help us understand how we work with clients to identify what expressive interventions could be most beneficial to healing, integrating, or just becoming “unstuck.” This workshop will be experiential in nature.
No arts experience is necessary, just an openness to try something creative.
