The Improv Therapy Group is the manifestation of a profound connection between life skills and improvisation training. Improv classes provide a safe space to practice imperfection, let go of control and practice mindfulness while having fun and laughing.

We will leave time to process how the communication techniques learned in these games and exercises have been applied to Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Group Therapy, Couples Therapy and Individual Therapy.

EACH WEEKLY CLASS EARNS 1.25 CONTINUING EDUCATION UNITS (CEU)

All classes meet on ZOOM.
