This is a two-hour online professional consulting group designed for fully licensed mental health professionals as well as those professionals who are working toward becoming Registered Play Therapists. We will explore poetry to examine the power of metaphor in literature, society at large, and the healing process. There will be time for creative exploration of themes as they emerge and relate to our personal lives and work with clients. This group will meet on the second Monday of the month from 9 AM to 11 AM Pacific. The size of this group is limited to 12 participants in order to help foster an intimate environment and exploration as we meet online.
The goal of this group is to use poetry to tap into metaphors as a point of making meaning in our life and work while living in the pressures and demands of today's society. We will also explore integrating written poetry as well as the writing of poetry into therapy sessions. We will briefly discuss understanding how to strategically select among various poetic forms to facilitate the therapeutic process.
** No CEs are offered for this group.
