November 2017 | Three-day training with Cathy Malchiodi, PhD, and Elizabeth Warson, PhD, at the fabulous Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, New Mexico
Complete Trauma-Informed Expressive Arts Therapy Level One Certificate at this special offering at historic Ghost Ranch in New Mexico! This course presents key trauma-informed arts-based and expressive arts therapy strategies and applications to support self-regulation, enhance resilience and reduce stress responses to trauma and loss. Participants will engage in a variety of hands-on experiences [individual and group] using mind-body, mindfulness, self-regulation, wellness, resilience and strength-based best practices grounded in emerging research. The essential practices presented in this course can be applied to individuals of all ages, but particular emphasis is on families, groups and communities from a culturally-responsive, trauma-informed approach. Participants who attend all three days will learn:
1) the seven components of trauma-informed practice;
2) at least seven art-based methods used in culturally responsive, trauma-informed intervention;
3) at least five reasons why sensory-based, art interventions are essential to reducing the body’s response to stress;
4) at least five approaches that enhance resilience through culturally responsive, trauma informed intervention;
5) at least five ways to apply course material to work with children, adults, families, groups or communities that have
experienced acute trauma, chronic trauma or historical/intergenerational trauma.
