Workshop Overview:

Challenge yourself with a deep dive into your creative and fun side!

Learn techniques and tools inspired by the art of improv comedy (like on the tv show, "Whose Line is it Anyway?") as translated for use in the therapeutic world.  You'll garner engaging new ways to assist clients to explore and process their thoughts and feelings, and to memorably emphasize and reinforce your client's in-session insights.  The rationale behind these methods as they relate to our brains will be discussed.  You'll exit the workshop recharged and outfitted with fresh resources to invigorate the therapy process for both yourself and your clients.
