Description

Do you work with challenging children and teens who seem absolutely resistant to every intervention you offer? Clients who are stuck, repeating the same patterns over and over and you feel like you’re powerless to help them? You know the ones that repeatedly refuse to listen and don’t stop to think before they act. Or those who refuse to take responsibility for their behaviors and constantly pass blame onto others? Do they leave you feeling stagnant and burnt out in your practice?

Watch this recording and learn innovative interventions that will help even your most resistant clients become unstuck. Your day will consist of creative, interactive, hands-on training that will re-energize your work. You will leave with fresh new art strategies and approaches that you can use immediately to engage even your most difficult and challenging clients. These tools are fun and playful. They will offer you an opportunity to refresh yourself as well!

No art experience is necessary, just an openness to try something creative.
