Fall Education Retreat

November 10-11

Arts & Healing Trauma, facilitated by Cathy Hasty

Camp Caraway

This interactive retreat will empower participants to experience the dignity, safe space and compassionate care offered through the creative arts in healing trauma. Facilitated by Cathy Hasty - Th.M, BCC, LCMHCS, ACPE CE - retreat participants will better understand our own responses to trauma and have a path of nourishing renewal.  Cathy will offer tools to bring us back to a place of balance where we can be more effective in our work, more present with our families and a conduit of peace with our patient/client care. *For the utmost safety, we request all those attending our NCCA event in person to properly wear masks while indoors.  During meals, we are aware masks will be removed.  You will have the opportunity to eat inside or outside - depending on your comfortability.  The space we are meeting will be intentionally set to provide opportunity for appropriate social distancing as well.  Thanks for continuing to work with us as we want to be intentional for our first time together in person since 2019.  WE CAN'T WAIT!!!

Agenda Overview:

"Our sessions will be a guided exploration of three types of expressive arts play.  This experience allows us to toy with a few concepts from the large field of trauma informed, resiliency based understandings.  The on line options will be self guided with small groups over Zoom, and may differ from the in house options.
