Art Therapy Workshop for Trauma Survivors! 2/23/2017

Art is often a way to express an experience for which words may feel inadequate.  Trauma and the journey of the survivor towards healing can be difficult to articulate; creativity can facilitate the transition from the unspoken subconscious to the expressed metaphor through other means of depiction of experience.

Our upcoming workshop is an opportunity for survivors to be in a safe place, to share in their experience, to find ways to express their process, and to have choice in how to accomplish integration of historical adversity.

Additional information is provided on the attached flyer.  Contact us with inquiries!Art Therapy Workshop

DBT Groups Now Offered at ITTC

Dialectical Behavior Therapy is an excellent tool for affect regulation and helps those who are struggling to keep their emotions within a window that feels reasonable.  We often utilize it in adjunct with individual therapy for trauma survivors who want to build some of the skills that were not offered during their development as a result of a chaotic upbringing.

One of our clinicians, Sophie Toolenan, is offering regular DBT groups both for those within our clinic and in our community.
