Process Not Perfection Book Course
Process Not Perfection: Expressive Arts Solutions for Trauma Recovery is the first book of its kind on the market. Written for both the general public and clinical audiences, Process Not Perfection takes readers on a journey through using expressive arts process and practices for healing trauma. The book contains fifteen expressive arts processes (collections of 6-7 practices each) built along various themes necessary to trauma recovery (e.g., grounding, blocks to feeling, daily practice). In Process Not Perfection, the three major sections containing five processes each are called Preparing, Deepening, and Manifesting They are organized to correspond with the three-phase consensus model of trauma treatment: stabilization, processing, and reintegration.
Because readers are invited to work through the processes in order to get the most out of the content, it is not possible to offer this book course as a simple “read through” and take a test. In order to earn the 20 homestudy CEUs/CEs offered by The Institute for Creative Mindfulness, you are required to:
· submit a portfolio demonstrating your work through the 15 processes of the book and
· write a 4-5 page reaction paper demonstrating your understanding of the material and how it can be applied with clients and in clinical settings
