Tap into the power of the creative mind with social connection, mindful awareness and improvisational play. Improvisational techniques are currently being used with a number of therapy models— from the post-modern to the cognitive and behavioral approaches. These practices are used to reduce anxiety, to boost resilience and to enhance receptivity to change. Improvisational warm-ups and games bring attention into the now and provide the opportunity to venture into the unknown, to collaboratively create and to play. When done regularly, these practices can have profound positive effects upon our own lives and neurobiology as well as upon our clients.
Join us for a playdate! This interactive, experiential program will lead participants in a sampling of improvisational warm-ups and games. None of our activities will be strenuous. Please wear comfortable shoes. We will have a short time for participants to share their experience of the activities and to explore how these and similar practices might enhance therapeutic work. We can enjoy the magic of spontaneous connection with our colleagues while we bring more confidence, vitality and joy into our lives!
