Exploring Adventure: Trauma and PTSD

Come ready to test out your adventure therapy interventions for treating Trauma and PTSD. Inspiration for this topic invites ideas from somatic experiencing, EMDR, nature based therapies and more. Each participant is encouraged to bring one or two activities, games, exercises that could be used to help a client dealing with addiction, and share them with the group. We will take turns leading exercises and giving ideas and feedback. Don't have any interventions or experience working with addiction yet? Come and learn! Your perspective and questions are welcome. You'll come away with some great new ideas and inspiration. Our location is Aldefer Three Sisters Park in Evergreen.
