August 22, 23, 24, 2019 in Woody Point, Newfoundland and Labrador.
Registration opens March 1, 2019. Come back to this page to register, or sign up to receive registration information via email.
The retreat is offered to any adult interested in a quiet day of self-reflection, and learning more about journaling as a tool for self-care. Will include meditation, movement, writing and sharing in a group. Sharing is optional. $150 for the day.
The retreat is a crucial part of the training and supports my first rule: "Don't ask clients to do anything you are not willing to do yourself." It will also allow you some time of self-care - which is an important aspect of burn-out prevention.
The retreat will be followed by two relaxed days learning about the theory, benefits and how-to of therapeutic writing. Practical exercises will be given to you so you can start immediately with your clients or group.
This training is for anyone who believes writing might be a good addition to their work: social workers, counsellors, health promoters, youth leaders, etc.
Keep checking for information concerning registration, accommodation, and more details on the program. Registration opens March 1. Maximum for the training is 20 people so register early.
