OUR SUMMER 2017 THAILAND PROJECT
Our team worked with 3 organizations in Northern Thailand. Here are some images from our work there. We worked with about 50 children and women over two weeks engaging them in trauma-informed yoga and movement and expressive arts activities.

Our training of students/psychotherapists/social workers and interns consists of mindfulness and yoga as well as didactic training in trauma-informed expressive arts, neurobiological research about trauma and other clinical aspects. We also explore the culture where we are doing fieldwork, including visiting temples, exploring waterfalls and enjoying the local food!
