Series Information

Evidence-based, cognitively-oriented trauma treatment can often feel routine and inflexible for providers obligated to work within a cognitive orientation. This 4-part series inspires a creative approach to trauma treatment, supporting providers in community behavioral health, private practice and other child and family-serving settings to ethically employ creative strategies to address and support clients to meet their treatment plan goals. Participants will gain exposure to and practical experience with play-based, art-infused, and narrative strategies. The curriculum must be taken as a whole, so applicants must commit to the 4-part series. Students and novice therapists are welcome to attend, though it is encouraged that attendees have a foundational understanding of the basic components shared by most trauma-focused cognitive protocols.
