Continuing Education

Presented by Camphill Academy

The Continuing Education Program offers a variety of workshops consistent with the aims and vision and the Camphill Academy’s overall mission in the fields embraced by the work of the Camphill Movement, such as community and organizational development, leadership education, social work, health care and the arts. Under the direction of a Core Faculty, workshops are offered at different locations throughout the United States and Canada, and often in collaboration with a participating community or partner organization. The program provides opportunities for those inspired by Camphill’s work and values to engage in relevant professional development informed by anthroposophy. Some workshops are open to the public, while others may serve members of specific organizations. Some workshops may require a minimum level of experience from participants.

From Biography to Flourishing

Social Therapeutic & Trauma-Informed Perspectives for Our Work

With Dr. Beth Barol

6:30-8:30pm ET
$75 per participant
CEUs: .6

Even in the context of meaningful relationships and rich community life, we all experience times of crisis and transition. During these periods, we need accompaniment and support to move out of crisis and into flourishing. Even with the best of intentions, discerning how to best accompany your fellow community members with dual diagnoses, challenging behaviors, or changing support needs can elude supporters. Learning to understand life experiences, including, friendships, love, mastery and successes, as well as trauma, marginalization, and loss, often leads us to a positive healing path through times of crisis and transition. The biographical timeline is a tool to help us gain a compassionate understanding of the underpinning experiences in another person’s life, and from this explore a myriad of social therapeutic activities and approaches to build a better life together with the person. In this workshop we will explore how biography can help us accompany someone through crisis into flourishing, rooted in the context of inclusive and intentional community.
