    Teaching Parents to Access Art’s Power to Connect and Heal

    • Presented by:

      Erica Curtis LMFT, ATR-BC

      Summary

      Parents are often at a loss when it comes to intervening with big feelings and behaviors at home. Even best practices in talking to their children don’t consistently help regulate, problem solve, or connect. Art can help parents get through to children quickly when words won’t. In this informative and artful workshop, attendees will learn how to help parents adapt simple art interventions to use with varying ages in a pinch at home to build sustainable connection with their children and help heal emotional distress. Attendees will further learn ways to guide parents in unlocking the power of creativity in order to help parents access their own internal parenting strengths when they are the hardest to tap into but most needed.

       

      2 CEU’s will be provided

      Who Should Attend?

      Clinicians who want to learn more about trauma and how to begin to include the body in treatment. Trauma affects the mind and body simultaneously, and healing occurs at both levels. Art Therapists, LMFTs, LCSWs, and LPCCs are eligible to earn 2 CEUs.
