Training for Professionals

Experiential Therapy Training

Expressive arts therapies offer  powerful tools for healing and transformation, using drama, music, movement, art, imagery, poetry, and writing.

This training for mental health professionals provides a framework for weaving together a variety of verbal and expressive therapy techniques.

The material is applicable across all theoretical orientations, including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, and solution-focused. Participants will have opportunities to develop increased skill and comfort with experiential methods, and will learn how to integrate these new skills into their own style of practice.

No arts experience is necessary. Because of the experiential nature of the training, learning will take place on both a personal and a professional level.
