Level 2 Certificate: Expressive Arts Training


A REVIEW of 2017

A true journey of deepening what was learned in prior expressive arts training.  Students dive in upon their arrival on Day 1, beginning the process of creating group safety with an openness to learn from the arts, the trainers, and one another.  Every aspect of the program is intentional as all activities tie into well thought out learning objectives.  The immersion experience is itself both challenging and enriching as it allows for the learning to be layered and deepened by moving from theory to experience as we develop more fully our roles as therapists and facilitators.  

What some students have shared:

Level 2 of the Expressive Arts training allowed me to go further than the experiential side of level 1 as I started to interweave the theory and practice of expressive arts therapy into my therapy practice. I was able to find new ways to interact with clients and to work collaboratively with other professionals while being able to show the benefits of this therapy methodology. It allows me to creatively find ways to engage clients and to help them find their own path to well being. S. B. Edmonton

The Level Two Expressive Arts training offered development with professional and personal growth, inspiration and excited curiosity. There is a purposefulness in each day with learning, discovery and
fun! I completed the training with a renewed clarity and wealth of beautiful certitude in knowing my desired direction, with support and zest. I have a deep appreciation for Carmen and the other trainers, where I was treated with dignity and kindness and being gifted with the unimaginable knowledge which these women hold. Kindly each day, offering support, wisdom and enthusiasm!  L.O. Calgary

Overview: This three day training will provide participants with a comprehensive framework for treating traumatized children & teens. This four- phase, resource-oriented model is grounded in attachment theory, the psychophysiology of trauma, CBT, and expressive arts therapy. It is based on Carmen’s recently published book, “Expressive Arts Therapy for Traumatized Children and Adolescents: A Four-Phase Model”.



Training Objectives: To provide a practical, structured framework that guides assessment & treatment processes. To learn structured, arts-based, sensory interventions to effectively treat key trauma reactions and promote self-regulation. To increase clinical skills such as working with a resource-oriented lens, tracking client sensory processes, & working with the body, art & relationship.




About the four-phase model:
“Although rich with creative activities, the author quickly establishes that these are not to be approached as a ‘recipe’ of activities to pick and choose from, but as strategically placed activities to support the larger picture of helping children develop the resilience needed to experience posttraumatic growth.  The structured framework helps to ensure a process that is safe, but it also provides the flexibility necessary for following the child’s creative processing and use of varied activities at a pace that is safe and tolerable.”
