PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT EVENTS
AMBER GRAY TRAUMA WORK TRAINING: THE ART OF EMBODIED RESILIENCE: DANCE AND MOVEMENT APPROACHES TO PROMOTE WELL-BEING OF OUR CLIENTS AND OURSELVES
This workshop will provide theoretical, scientific, and contemplative rationale for the use of movement as measure of protection, self-care, and increased resilience, as well as an emergent best practice approach for therapeutic work with survivors of trauma. We will simultaneously learn breath, movement, rhythm and dance based practices that promote resilience and that can be used in therapeutic work with our survivor clients of all ages. Amber provides training and consultation nationally and internationally on somatic and creative arts psychotherapies with survivors of war, torture, and natural disasters. One of the primary focuses of her work is staff care and support programs for humanitarian workers in complex humanitarian emergencies. She has taken her work to almost forty countries. She is the Western Region MAL for the ADTA Board of Directors, and was the 2010 Outstanding Achievement Award recipient.
