Creative Counseling Techniques:
Engaging Clients in a Virtual Reality

The COVID-19 pandemic has many mental health providers working virtually through telehealth services. A year later, many professionals struggle to find new ways to engage clients during a virtual session. Therapist burnout can add to the ongoing pressure felt by many professionals providing therapeutic services online. Adding creative art techniques can bolster therapeutic rapport and connection to deepen the healing experience of traditional talk therapy.  

Join us in a unique 2-hour experiential and interactive workshop where you will learn to use creative interventions in a virtual therapy session.  Attendees will be actively engaged and will leave the workshop with creative techniques that can be applied and modified across diagnoses, populations, ages, and situations. Participants will gain hands-on experience with a variety of creative activities for assessment, rapport building, exploring emotions to help their clients to heal while also inducing creativity in the therapist.
