for Building Resilience Necessary for Recovery
"Art is an essential part of the mytho-poetic matrix that restores and makes healing the wounds of trauma possible". Kalsched, (2013)
The Creative Arts Therapies are uniquely situated to provide clinicians with verbal and especially non-verbal tools to help clients recover from traumatic experiences and provides the clinician creative clinical methods for working with clients suffering from PTSD, because trauma is difficult to describe and heal with words alone. This training will present the mental health professional with brain-based research on trauma and how the arts are uniquely situated to mitigate trauma at its source (where it is stored in the brain). Interrelated methods for treating clients who are recovering from trauma and PTSD will be presented that foster recovery, safely, without re-traumatization. How to use these methods in an online setting will also be discussed. This one-day training will additionally include the screening and discussion of the award-winning film: RESILIENCE: The Biology of Stress & The Science of Hope.
