This training space is specifically held for clinicians identifying as Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, and other traditionally underrepresented persons of color (BIPOC). We believe that creating this space for learning is valuable to our community and works to fully realize our commitment to Social Justice by actively promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion within trainings, programs, and publications. Special emphasis will be given to resources centering on the experiences and contributions of BIPOC clinicians, clients, and other related professionals.
This training is ideal for BIPOC clinicians and other qualified professionals who respond well to self-directed assignments and can adapt well in an online learning format. A strong commitment to your own self-care, both physically and emotionally, is also required to complete the training in this format. If you are feeling any trepidation about completing your training in this format, you are encouraged to wait until in-person trainings are possible or widely available again. Please feel free to direct any questions you have to email@example.com before registering.
Mindfulness is the simple practice of noticing without judgment and returning to the present moment. Moreover, the efficacy of mindfulness-informed clinical interventions are well-established in peer review literature, and the ways of teaching clients mindfulness skills for coping and distress tolerance are ever expanding in the clinical literature. Mindfulness, psychodrama, meditation, and yoga are modalities that can promote wellness and recovery, and the larger traditions of Gestalt psychotherapy and person-centered therapy have a rich tradition of drawing from their wisdom in clinical work. In this module of a larger expressive arts therapy training developed by Dr. Jamie Marich, using dance/movement and mindfulness, in conjunction with the other expressive arts, in a trauma-informed system of care is instructed. Dance becomes the primary avenue through which to access mindful awareness and connect to the multi-modality possibilities within the expressive arts therapies. For more information, see our website.
