Wellness-Focused Treatment Using Transformative Metaphor & Action Methods

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 810

In the helping professions, there are so many ways to talk about disorders and what is wrong, but when it comes to expressing happiness, satisfaction, and state of well-being within the clinical context, fewer options come to mind. In this 3-hour workshop, participants will gain a basic understanding of wellness-focused work, and practice applying some of these tenets through reflective reading and writing exercises. Prompts, poems, and psychodramatic action methods that demonstrate wellness metaphors and identify aspects of resilience will be presented through the Health and Wellness Coaching framework. Come learn new ways to work with themes of joy and resilience with your clients! No prior experience with coaching or psychotherapy is necessary; this workshop does not substitute for formal training in either.

Eligible for 3.0 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS
