Creative Journal Expressive Arts Workshops with Lisa Brown

The Creative Journal Expressive Arts incorporates, music, journal writing, and the process of creating by giving clients self-nurturing activities to express their deepest feelings in a safe place, not requiring artistic skill so that they themselves can figure out the best solution to their own issues using their intuition.

In these workshops I direct the clients to use a variety of techniques and media to help them with difficult issues and life changes such as: relationships, health, lose of a loved one, or finding their true desires.

Through these methods which use journal writing with both their and dominant and non-dominant hand they will discover some answers, solve problems, and empowering them to take control of their life by simply listening to their subconscious as they play with art materials.   These are methods are life long and can be used in many situations.

Each year, I offer two Regional CJEA retreats (the weekend after July 4th and the first weekend in Dec) for 3 days of learning, exploring and creating. These retreats are for anyone but are especially geared towards those who are certified CJEA trainees. Many of them returning every year.

I am the Assistant Supervisor and Regional Coordinator under Dr. Marsha Nelson and author of 20 books on Journaling with Art, Dr. Lucia Capacchione. I have worked with both Marsha and Lucia to create a mentoring program for CJEA trainees in finding their dreams.

I also added these methods when facilitating for support groups: brain injured, bereavement, cancer survivors, and their families. I find the therapeutic value of losing yourself in the process of creating is greatly enhanced by incorporating these methods into my workshops.

In using a variety of media and a theme dedicated towards the group I am facilitating makes each workshop personal and extra special. With my extensive art expertise and my love for helping others, I can bring to your group an unique experience. Call to set up a date (908) 561-9226
