About this Event

What are you doing for your own mental health this winter?

Join us for laughter, self-care, and play with fellow therapists. We welcome all clinicians (interns included)!

We will leave time to process how the communication techniques learned in these games and exercises have been applied to Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Group Therapy, Couples Therapy and Individual Therapy.

This term, from January 15 to March 7, 2020, we offer two options for days at two Chicago locations.

Wednesday classes will be at

MANDALA RESTORATIVE THERAPY

Saturday classes will be at

FOUNDATIONS RECOVERY NETWORK

225 W Washington, Chicago, IL

CEU CREDIT AVAILABLE FOR THIS PROGRAM.

Did you know Improv Started In Social Work!

Improv as we know it began in Chicago in the1920’s and 1930’s at the Hull House where Viola Spolin, a social worker, used theatre games to help immigrants acculturate into society.

Her son co-founded Second City.

Our IMPROV FOR THERAPISTS class teaches how to add improv games, exercises and practices into Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Group Therapy or Individual Therapy sessions.

We welcome all levels of clinicians. The class is great for therapists who want to learn how improv can be further engaged in their work as therapist for movement, drama, recovery, groups and even individuals.

Clinicians will enjoy an hour of laughter and self care with people who get it.
