When Left Brain Meets Right Brain: A Creative Arts Approach to Recovery

Special Experiential CPE Event


Carol Dietrich, Experiential Therapist and Drama Specialist
Mind Therapy Clinic

Monday, October 23, 6:00pm – 8:00pm

Individuals with mental illness can become trapped in a destructive cycle of self-recrimination, which impairs their ability to live a balanced life. This presentation introduces the application of experiential methods to stimulate creativity and flexibility via exercises that prompt spontaneity, trust, emotional expression and the development of an observing self.  Focus will be on utilizing creative practices to assist clients with separating from their disorder and integrating a compassionate voice of recovery. Emphasis will be placed on the use of masks and role-playing to facilitate integration.
