You will explore your personal potential and participate in designing a Creative Living Plan for growth, change, and personal renewal.

Team-Building: Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
This interactive workshop is offered in a 4- 8 hour format. Each participant receives individual coaching feedback prior to the team workshop.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an assessment tool used with individuals and organizations to develop understanding of one’s self, co-workers, clients, and stakeholders. When used with a group, the MBTI helps a team to understand and leverage the natural work style preferences and talents of all team members. The MBTI assessment identifies 16 different temperament types, each with its own characteristics and strengths.
The assessment process can be offered on-line. Each team member receives a detailed report about their personal style and a team report can be produced that reflects the overall team style based on the contributions of each team member. The MBTI assessment process supports the development of skills in decision-making, conflict-management, planning, stress management, strengthening team interface, and understanding the interpersonal styles of oneself and others.
Exploring the Roar behind Self-Silencing with Person-Centered Expressive Arts
This experiential workshop offers Person-Centered Expressive Arts as a means to explore the “roar and the creative potential” behind self-silencing and suppressed emotions. Meditation, movement, art-making, sound, writing, and witnessing will be offered as a process for the participants to access their own suppressed emotions and garner an understanding of their clients self-silencing. This workshop will enable participants to understand and explore suppressed emotions and in turn utilize these processes to access creative potential with clients in clinical settings.
