Bring your clinical dilemmas and we can help each other determine how to use writing exercises to help.
We will incorporate yoga, an edible plant hike, a scavenger hunt, and other events to make your stay in Woody Point unforgettable.
A creation space will be set up in the venue where you can come in your spare time to write, draw or experiment with different journal types.
Short community workshops will be available on the benefits of keeping a journal and using writing exercises in creative writing. We will also have an Open Mike event where you can read poems, stories or things you wrote as children.
Interested participants will make short presentations about creative therapeutic approaches they use.
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., or anyone with a strong interest in therapeutic writing.
