CPD/CEU, doesn't have to be boring and it shouldn't give you a sense that it's wasting your time. As a CATherapist of color, it's sometimes hard to find CPD/CEU that helps us grow. You might be able to relate that It's difficult to find workshops that speak specifically to the needs of those in black and brown communities. At times our issues are misinterpreted which can leave clients that look like us feeling unseen.
Well, We wanna make CPD/CEU meaningful to you! We want to give you a space where committing to ongoing learning is exciting and fills you with a sense of empowerment when working with your clients.

Implementing Art Therapy and
Restorative Justice Circles
to create positive
Friday, August 18th, 2023

2.5 CPD/CE credits
If you haven't heard of Restorative Circles (RC), it is an approach to repairing harm that has been done within a community.
Participants in a circle are encouraged to be open and honest about their perspectives regarding a conflict that has taken place. The focus is on discussing how they have been harmed, and how they think others might have been harmed. They then come together to resolve and restore the relationships.
This workshop demonstrates how integrating Art Therapy within an RC framework helps students gain a deeper sense of accountability for the roles they play in harming others while increasing social-emotional intelligence skills. Additionally, the long-term effects of this approach can support a positive schoolwide sense of community and togetherness.
