Course Description :
Do you have clients who are stuck, repeating the same patterns over and over and you feel like you’re powerless to help them? You know, the ones who repeatedly refuse to listen and don’t stop to think before they act. Or those who refuse to take responsibility for their behaviors and constantly pass blame onto others. Do they leave you feeling stagnant and burnt out in your practice? Do you work with challenging children, teens and families who seem absolutely resistant to every intention you offer?

Let Dr. Patricia Isis, international presenter, author, certified mindful self-compassion teacher and board certified registered art therapist help you! Attend this seminar and learn innovative interventions that are guaranteed to help even your most resistant clients become unstuck. Your day will consist of creative, interactive, hands-on training that will re-energize your work. You will leave with fresh new art strategies and approaches that you can use immediately to engage even your most difficult and challenging clients. These tools are fun and playful. They will offer you an opportunity to refresh yourself as well!

Course Objectives are :
• Apply therapeutic art directives and immediately implement into your therapy practice to help children, teens, adults and families regulate their emotions and behaviors.
• Analyze the ethical implications and your scope of practice when selecting therapeutic artmaking approaches.
• Assess the stages of children’s normative development, and warning signs suggesting a possibility for additional clinical support.
• Implement the use of simple and economic art materials; what to use and when, so you can feel immediately confident using art in your practice.
• Prepare a plan for introducing art into clinical practice for treatment-resistant and challenging children and families.
• Playfully practice the creative process via interactive hands-on therapeutic art-making experiences.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
