Learning how to facilitate experiential therapy is most manageable when you learn the nuts and bolts, and build your skills one step at a time.

This 2-day in-person Training on Facilitation of Experiential Therapy is designed for those who are interested in learning new skills, or sharpening and enhancing old ones for their clinical “tool box.” We will co-create a safe and supportive environment where everyone will have an opportunity to facilitate at their level – from conducting just one warm up exercise to facilitating a full piece of work.

This workshop can also serve as a safe space in which to do your own healing work, which can be difficult to find for those of us working in the addiction and/or mental health fields.

Some of the topics we can explore will be:
* Facilitating an effective warm up
* Setting a goal for the work
* Structuring the piece – Where do I begin?
* Setting the scene that needs healing and/or change
* Bringing in and using role players effectively
* How to move the piece along
* What to do when you get stuck
* Utilizing techniques such as doubling, role reversal, and mirroring
* Facilitating a catharsis
* Ending the piece – knowing when you’ve met your goal
* Facilitating effective sharing and integration
* Providing effective containment for the group or client(s) before ending

NO prior experiential therapy facilitation experience is required.

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 admin@braveheartretreats.com 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)

as long as other group participants feel comfortable with this.

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

Substance Use Policy
If you are in recovery, you must have at least 1 year of continuous time.  In addition, because personal work is frequently addressed in our trainings, it is required that all participants abstain from alcohol and non prescribed substances for the duration of this training as well as the 24 hours prior to workshop commencement. This will aid in being present for the personal work and learning.
