Description

Expressive Therapies can:

  • Enhance client’s ability to communicate effectively and authentically
  • Overcome client resistance and build upon inner resiliency and strengths
  • Reframe trauma experiences, increase self-regulation, and connect to a mind-body awareness
  • Provide clients hands-on interactive experiences to heal from abuse, neglect, domestic violence and more

Janet Courtney, Ph.D., RPT-S, author and internationally recognized storyteller brings over 30 years of experience working with clients through expressive therapies, and will share a variety of expressive therapy interventions that you will be able to incorporate into clinical practice. Play, art & clay therapy, movement/dance/music, storytelling and nature are just some of the expressive therapies that Dr. Courtney will teach you in this recording, bringing you tools that can transform a client’s attachment related trauma, trauma associated with physical and emotional crises (abuse, neglect, domestic violence, natural disasters, among others). Expressive therapies can also provide clinicians a new and unique way to teach clients self-regulation skills to calm anxiety, focus attention, and overcome depressive states.

In this skill enriching training, you will learn therapeutic techniques that can empower your clients to:

  • Build resiliency
  • Reframe their trauma experiences
  • Increase self-efficacy
  • Self-regulate emotions
  • Build a sense of control
  • Connect to mind-body awareness and nature
  • Enhance interpersonal relationships
  • Take action beyond the therapy session to heal
