Event Details

Chill & Spill helped our agency engage youth in the way that made sense to them. It’s edgy and creative and so it doesn’t feel like therapy – the very reason why it works so well.”~ Social Worker, Casey Family Programs

“It is a huge success that all the boys bonded to their Chill & Spill books and saw how art could be a way to cope and find healing.”   ~ Therapist, Griffin Home Residential Treatment Facility

“The Chill & Spill group helped students compartmentalize whatever hard stuff they were dealing with so they could deal with school.” ~ Middle School Prevention/Intervention Specialist

Friday, October 4 from 3-7PM and Saturday, Oct. 5 from 8:30AM-5:30PM

Chill & Spill (C&S) is a therapeutic curriculum and hands-on approach that...

  • Teaches creative expression as a tool to reach reluctant youth and engage groups
  • Helps youth increase self awareness and manage difficult emotions
  • Encourages coping skills, as well as social and emotional learning (SEL)
  • Provides a “heal the healer” opportunity for youth care professionals

This intensive day-and-a-half course prepares participants to bring the program to adolescents and will teach them:

  • The benefits of the program as demonstrated by a year-long evaluation study, including the conceptual and research base for the role of creativity and its application in mental health promotion
  • Hands-on artistic experience in a variety of media (creative writing, collage, painting, poetry)
  • Basic skills necessary to strengthen relationships with youth through creativity

Combining best practices of cognitive behavioral, narrative and art therapies, this evidence-based curriculum helps youth in distress. This hands-on workshop, led by Annie McCall, MA, LMHC (co-founder of Youth & Family DBT of Seattle) and Steffanie Lorig, co-author of Chill & Spill, will teach you how to use the healing arts to help kids in your car through lecture, hands-on activities, and group discussion.

Price includes food, art supplies, and books. Limited number of scholarships are available. Participants are eligible to receive 11 Continuing Education units. For more information, contact Space is limited.

Please note: This training is typically offered for $250-300 and is discounted because of financial support of our donors. The funds will go to help support a scholarship fund for Newtown therapists to receive free books to support their work.

Co-Sponsored by The Connecticut Counseling Association. Hosted by Healing Newtown, Newtown Congregational Church and the Newtown Cultural Arts Commission.
