Starting in September, I will hold a monthly consultation group for counsellors/psychotherapists interested in using therapeutic writing in their interventions.
September 1, I will hold a half-day workshop/orientation for those for whom this approach is new. I will introduce therapeutic writing, how it helps, the type of clients that are best suited for this work and give you some basic tools you can use right away. Space is limited to 6 people.
Starting in October I will hold a monthly consultation/discussion group for anyone who has attended a previous training or orientation. We will discuss different clinical situations and specific writing exercises which might help. You will have a chance to try those exercises and then discuss. Space is limited to 6 and you must register to hold your spot.
The workshop/orientation session is $75 (+HST $9.75) and consultations are $50 (+HST $6.50) each. If you purchase the orientation and three sessions in advance the cost is $213.50, including HST - a saving of $40.75) The manual used is available here.
Workshop and consultations will be held at 440 Laurier Ave, W. in downtown Ottawa.
