 “Perhaps the most important thing we bring to another person is the silence in us, 
not the sort of silence that is filled with unspoken criticism or hard withdrawal. 
The sort of silence that is a place of refuge, of rest, of acceptance of someone as they are. 
We are all hungry for this other silence. It is hard to find. 
In its presence we can remember something beyond the moment, a strength on which to build a life. 
Silence is a place of power and healing.” 

 Rachel Naomi Remen

Three Day Training in Body-Focused Expressive Arts Therapy for Traumatized Children and Adolescents



When:  October 18 - 20, 2018
Where: 57 Bearspaw Summit Place, Calgary, AB 
Cost: $525 before September 15, 2018 & $575 after
Payment Methods: e-transfer or cheques 

Overview: This three day training will provide participants with a comprehensive framework for treating traumatized children & teens. This four- phase, resource-oriented model is grounded in attachment theory, the psychophysiology of trauma, CBT, and expressive arts therapy. It is based on Carmen’s book, “Expressive Arts Therapy for Traumatized Children and Adolescents: A Four-Phase Model”.

Training Objectives: To provide a practical, structured framework that guides assessment & treatment processes. To learn structured, arts-based, sensory interventions to effectively treat key trauma reactions and promote self-regulation. To increase clinical skills such as working with a resource-oriented lens, tracking client sensory processes, & working with the body, art & relationship.


About the four-phase model: “Although rich with creative activities, the author quickly establishes that these are not to be approached as a ‘recipe’ of activities to pick and choose from, but as strategically placed activities to support the larger picture of helping children develop the resilience needed to experience posttraumatic growth.  The structured framework helps to ensure a process that is safe, but it also provides the flexibility necessary for following the child’s creative processing and use of varied activities at a pace that is safe and tolerable.”

falls into your own cupped hands and you recognize and greet it.
Only then will you know how to give yourself to this world
