About the event

Workshop Description:

In this interactive trauma-informed workshop, participants will learn how to integrate simple, minimalistic, and hands-on practices into their therapeutic sessions. Our focus will be on developing accessible body-based techniques that promote moments of rest and restoration on physical, mental, and emotional levels.

Key components of the seminar will include: 

  • Creating a Safe Space: Learn strategies to cultivate a trauma-informed and creative environment within a therapy context. 
  • Minimalistic Approach: Discover how to facilitate impactful sessions using minimal resources and art materials. 
  • Somatic Interventions: Explore effective somatic tools suitable for both individual and group settings. 
  • Expressive Art Therapy Flow: Understand the structure of a therapeutic session that seamlessly blends expressive arts with somatic practices. 
  • Improvisation and Playfulness: Embrace creativity and improvisation, making therapy sessions engaging and adaptive. 
  • Restorative Practices: Develop techniques for finding moments of calm and restoration for yourself and your clients. 

This workshop is ideal for therapists, counselors, and anyone interested in incorporating expressive art therapy and somatic interventions into their practice. Through practical training and hands-on activities, you'll gain the skills to create a soothing somatic flow, fostering holistic well-being for yourself and those you work with. Join us to experience the transformative power of creative and somatic healing practices.
