ShantiWorks is holding training sessions at our Richmond premises on the third Friday of each month (9:30am -1:00pm).

These sessions will provide professional development in a range of areas with the aim to support participants in developing their ethics, theories and practice in their work. These areas include working with a feminist lens, understanding and unpacking commonly used models and frameworks, and deepening our understanding of working with victim-survivors and perpetrators of family violence.

Weaving Somatic Awareness and Creative Expression With Clients

Cathy Williams
17th August, 2018

Cost: $110 + GST

Cathy Williams is a Movement and Expressive therapy facilitator and Community Development worker.

She is passionate about creating supportive spaces to invite clients and groups to explore, play and express through body and art modalities.

The aim of her practice is to provide opportunities for creative self-discovery and emotional integration, enhancing the participant’s connection with their innate body wisdom and building upon their inner resources.

This workshop is an opportunity for workers to be introduced to Movement and Expressive Therapy as a way of being with self and working with clients. Workers will learn briefly about the theory of this therapeutic practice and its benefits; will gain understanding of some processes through their own experiential participation; and share in reflective discussion about ways such processes can be used in client sessions and with groups.


Spaces are limited. To attend, please fill out your details below and an invoice will be sent to you.



We are also open to topic suggestions, as the ShantiWorks’ team wants this training to be relevant and useful to the community.
