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

This 2-day in-person Skill Building for Experiential Therapy Training is designed for those who are interested in learning new skills, or sharpening and adding new ones to 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.

Please note that you must be able to provide verification of full vaccination and/or booster (at least 2 weeks post your last shot) in order to attend any of our in person workshops or trainings.  In addition, per California law, all participants must wear masks during the training.
