Exercises and approaches that assist traumatized children, adults, families and groups with trauma recovery and integration will be presented; these principles can be applied to a variety of client needs in addition to trauma and loss. The course will include a dynamic combination of lecture, discussions, hands-on experiential practices, short films and case examples.
