Description

Expressive arts not only cultivate the healing powers of imagination, they also mobilize the social engagement system through play, improvisation, musicality, movement, and creativity. When integrated into therapy, they can revitalize and energize clients, helping them to engage more fully in the present while deepening implicit and meaningful sensory-based communications. In this hands-on recording, you’ll experience how to “get past talk” with creative, action-oriented methods that can be immediately applied to your practice.

Outline

Demonstrate arts-based approaches to enhance and deepen empathy, compassion, and interpersonal connection in our clients and ourselves. 
  • Participants will learn a variety of approaches; for example, dyadic drawing to enhance connection, compassion and empathy and mindful drawing of emotions to translate into gesture 
Use a bottom-up model for applying the expressive arts to facilitate the body’s natural resources for transformation and healing. 
  • Participants will learn how to apply the Expressive Therapies Continuum, a bottom-up arts-based model for clinical work 
Incorporate improvisation, dramatic enactment, gesture, bilateral movement, art making, and play as foundational practices to facilitate social engagement. 
  • Participants will learn through experiential work how all of these media can be combined as an integrative approach to promoting health and well-being in clients 
Provide action-oriented methods that “get past talk” to help clients co-regulate with others. 
  • Participants will experience non-verbal methods such as drawing, gesture, movement and dramatic enactment as ways to co-regulate therapist and client, as well as group engagement in psychotherapy settings 
Explore meaningful sensory-based communications to facilitate client engagement and improve treatment outcomes. 
  • Participants will engage in actual arts expression to understand the theoretical constructs of social engagement, polyvagal theory and non-verbal communication to effect change 
Use play, improvisation, musicality, and movement in a clinical setting. 
  • Participants will experience non-verbal methods such as drawing, gesture, movement and dramatic enactment as ways to co-regulate therapist and client, as well as group engagement in psychotherapy settings
