About this Event

Facilitated Growth - Experiential Activities for Recovery and Wellness

Experiential activities are designed to create experiences that facilitate group cohesion, team building, leadership skills, problem solving, and emotional regulation. “Show me Don’t tell me” has been a mantra for experiential therapy for decades. Experiential activities are designed to create a transformational experience. The latest research on trauma, addiction, and the pursuit of wellness is pointing towards brain-based activities. Over the last 5 years clients seeking treatment have changed and it is time we change with them.

In this one of a kind training you will learn by doing and heal through action. Use this opportunity to gain new insights and ways of showing up with your clients. Learn practical methods for creating connection and cultivating safety. Participants gain hands-on experience in applying experiential methods when treating clients with trauma, addiction, sexual and intimacy issues, eating disorders, codependency and low self-worth. Learn the bell curve model of sequencing to include warm-ups, deep dives, and cool downs.

This training will:

  • Allow you to experience the power of experiential work.
  • Help you understand why and how experiential modalities work.
  • Learn to facilitate experiential activities with tips, tools and techniques.
