Using Experiential Methods in Your Practice

Times:9:30 am - 5:00 pm

Actions speak louder than words, and adding experiential techniques to your clinical work can help clients to identify, understand and resolve internal and external conflicts more efficiently and effectively. By bringing issues to life, and implementing greater somatic awareness and attunement, clients can be helped to better engage in the therapeutic process, deepen affect, and move towards greater life satisfaction through role training new behaviors.

In this weekend workshop – for helping professionals only –  practitioners will learn specific experiential techniques, including sociometry and psychodrama, and will have the opportunity to practice new skills, with guidance, so that they can easily apply them in their clinical setting. This group can also serve as a safe and supportive place for professionals to do their own personal healing work.

Covid Policies:

Due to the on-going Covid-19 crisis, until further notice all in person workshops with BraveHeart Retreats are open to fully vaccinated individuals only. Proof of vaccination is required before group begins. Participants are asked to bring rapid Covid tests each day of the workshop and to arrive at 9am to take the test before we start the workshop at 9:30am. If you are unable to bring your own tests, please email at least 2 weeks before the start of the workshop. If anyone either tests positive for Covid-19 or has illness symptoms, we ask that you not return for the remainder of the workshop and a credit will be given towards a future workshop for time missed.

If there is reason to believe it is a false positive (which studies show are rare), you can get a PCR test and may be allowed to return to the workshop with:

  • a negative test
  • no symptoms
  • a willingness to wear a medical grade mask (N-95, KN-95, KF-94, or surgical)
  • other group participants feel comfortable with this.

General mask requirements for the workshop will be dependent on local ordinance and communicated prior to group.
