Join Us for Three Days of "Altered Books, Altered Stories" Visual Journaling Level Two | January 11, 12 & 13, 2019 | Franciscan Renewal Center, Scottsdale AZ

Institute Faculty: Cathy Malchiodi and Kat Kirby


This course open to counselors, social workers, psychologists, marriage and family therapists, expressive arts therapists, expressive arts facilitators, creative arts therapists, graduate students and "creatives" who want to deepen their knowledge of altered books as a way to transform personal narratives and engage ourselves and clients in their power to repair and heal. 

 

While it is best to take Level One before this course, it is not a prerequisite; this course is self-contained and we will review the foundational principles of Level One as part of the Level Two course.

 

Objectives and Agenda to follow soon! Right now, you can register to secure a space as seating will be limited.
