Creative Tools for Transformative Healing - Dealing with the imprint of abuse and trauma


This is an ACWA endorsed CPD program conducted by Judy Emma Greenberg and Anne Holland.

The levels of abuse and trauma in our community continue to grow. Are you working with clients who may be dealing with the imprint of childhood abuse and trauma? Would you like to help them develop new neural pathways for their well-being using right-brain techniques?

Creative Tools for Transformative Healing is an experiential 2-day workshop for professionals to empower clients and patients to increase their own self-management using creative practices.

In this workshop you will experience and learn:
  • How to step out of fear and create inner safety
  • The wisdom of the body, how emotions are held within and how to release them 
  • The language of the body, which is often expressed non-verbally 
  • The intuitive right-side of the brain and how it enables healing on many levels
  • A deepening of your relationship to the power of embodied empathy 
  • How to differentiate between the inner voice of the suffering self and the inner voice of the Higher Self
  • Techniques and skills designed to support your clients and patients to increase their capacity for self-care and resilience
  • How to use creative expression to develop new neural pathways for health and well-being
