$25/session- The Finding Ground curriculum, developed by Poe Liberado (MSW, RSW), pairs the secrets of plants with creative interventions for self discovery. Finding Ground focuses on building resiliency, emotional intelligence (EQ), and trust (TQ) using psycho-therapeutic tools and expressive arts to offer participants insights into the value of their past experiences for greater healing and connection.
In 8 facilitated sessions, participants will be guided through arts-based activities, group activities, and group discussions to explore developmental experiences, discover value/energy loss, and retain learning/unlearning. Those who express interest will be contacted for a phone intake interview to access eligibility. Groups are minimum 4 participants, maximum 6.
The group is designed for adults (18+) who are interested in processing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE). While expressive arts are used, no arts background or technical skills are required. Expressive arts in this context are a vehicle for insights, rather than a medium for creation.
