A Mind-Body Approach
Increasingly, therapists are looking for alternatives to the timeworn, office-bound rigidity of traditional private practice. This workshop offers a new vision of the private practice format: inclusion of an educational group process that can be used in a wide variety of settings with many different populations—people suffering from common problem like depression, anxiety, chronic illness, and trauma, as well as other healthcare professionals and community leaders. You’ll learn how to:
- Teach members self-awareness and self-care through guided meditation, drawing, journaling, movement, and other mind–body skills.
- Transition from the usual therapist role to one of group leader, educator, guide, and coach
- Develop a business model for both expanding your practice and reaching large numbers of people you might not otherwise serve
