How many times have you, the most experienced therapist, thought to yourself: “if I only had more creative tools to offer my clients…” sometimes in therapy words are not enough, especially when we work with trauma survivors.

In this experiential master class you will learn about and experience a variety of creative and expressive tools that you will be able to utilize with your clients in your practice. Whether in individual or group practice, you will add to your tool box valuable techniques to help clients enter their inner feelings, experiences and parts using techniques derived from Psychodrama, Role play, Arts, Movement, Music and other creative therapies modalities.

In the course of this experiential workshop participants will learn and will have the opportunity to tryout those innovative and new tools, evaluate and discuss the effect and benefits to their work.
