Group Processes


A half-day or full-day workshop that focuses on teaching individuals the necessary skills to facilitate successful groups. I empower group members to learn, participate, and tap into their own knowledge.

This workshop is ideal for team leaders, management personnel, human resource professionals, and employees who may be required to lead a variety of groups as part of their job description.

Group Processes with Children

and Teens

A half-day workshop designed for those clinicians who facilitate groups with children and teens and find it challenging at times. I review the stages of development, how groups with children and teens are different from those designed for adults, and then offer suggestions to engage children and teens via expressive therapies and therapeutic games.

Taming the Tiger: a Brief Introduction to Trauma Healing Methods

A half-day workshop based on the ground-breaking work of Dr. Peter Levine, who developed Somatic Experiencing.

I cover the definitions of trauma, the common symptoms to watch for in individuals who may be suffering from the results of a traumatic incident, and the risk of PTSD and its symptoms. In addition, I provide trauma care tools to those who are experiencing or who have experienced a traumatic event in their lives.

This workshop is useful for team leaders, management personnel, human resource professionals, and clinicians who work directly with clientele who may fit these criteria.

Suicidality 

A  workshop designed to increase knowledge around the topic of suicide. This workshop includes screening (risk and protective factors), a review of the CASE approach (“Chronological Assessment of Suicide Events”, developed by Shea, 1999), and suggestions for interventions.

Parenting Without Pulling Your Hair Out

Occasionally, all parents may feel like their parenting skills need some updating. Parenting is both exciting and exhausting. It requires knowledge in areas such as discipline, attachment, and child development and behaviour.


This workshop aims to help parents learn those additional skills that will make parenthood less stressful and more fulfilling. This event can be adapted to a half-day or full-day format or a 4-week group for a more in-depth experience.
