Hearing the Body — Healing the Mind: 
For Survivors of Trauma and Loss

When trauma is experienced it affects emotional, mental and physical health and increases the likelihood of chronic pain, anxiety, depression, addiction and relationship difficulties.  Experiential therapies (psychodrama, art, movement and other somatic work, meditation, music, etc) assist in the healing of trauma and loss and take the work beyond the thinking brain to the body and the mind where we were injured.

Who is invited? Individuals who are or have been in therapy. If you are not a client of Joan’s, you will need to schedule one individual session with Joan prior to registering.   Following the workshop,  you will return to your therapist with a continuing care plan.

Schedule: Friday, 10 to 5 PM, Saturday 9 to 5 and Sunday 9 to 5.

Cost: $800.  If you pay by check or cash the fee is reduced to $775.  Click here to pay online. or checks may be sent to Joan Furman.
