Healing through loss does not follow a single, standard protocol or a reliable linear progression. Art therapy can help adults
find a new way to move within their grief process and access feelings or memories they may not have words to explain.

This workshop will guide you in implementing three different art therapy experientials that leverage Bruce Perry’s 5 R’s (Relational, Relevant, Repetitive, Rewarding, Rhythmic) as a therapeutic bridge to help clients process grief. Participants
will gain a basic understanding of art therapy, review the stages of grief, and consider the connection between grief and trauma. Participants will also explore the sensory connection between the brain and body by practicing art therapy experientials ourselves.

Class size is limited to 45.

$50 General Admission
$30 Discounted Admission**
