Feedback from professional trainings and retreats featuring Expressive Arts:

I have had the lovely opportunity to attend the Mental Health Conference at Carol Joy Hollings the past few days. Little did we know that this was not only a conference to learn about strategies to take back to our own classrooms and to our kids to address mental health but truly a time for us as educators to address our own mental health as educators-to recharge, address issues we are dealing with internally, and have the mindset we need to start the year of on the right foot.

At this conference we learned different mental health strategies for our classrooms by fully immersing ourselves in these experiences. Some of the different strategies we learned about were Doors of Perception, Self-Care Tree Metaphors, Caring for Your Inner SuperHero, Find Your Wise Guide, Aromatherapy, SoulCollage, Window of Tolerance, and Sandtray therapy.

So to start off, I wanted to let you know that I REALLY enjoyed the EXA training. Probably one of the best and most relevant training I have attended in my entire counseling career. I am super excited to begin using the tools in my own practice as well as Group Therapy.
