About the Workshop
Healing the Wounds is a Level 2 (advanced) workshop that offers an opportunity to pursue deeper healing around issues related to your family of origin. As such, it’s primarily an experiential workshop. “Experiential” means the agenda includes exercises like psychodrama, “empty chair” work, and similar active ways of getting to deeper levels of both woundedness and healing. Small group time will comprise the majority of the workshop, rather than teaching segments.
Small groups will be co-ed with a mixture of addicts and co-addicts in each group of usually no more than six (6) participants. All therapists are at least master’s level, licensed therapists with specific training in psychodrama and experiential therapy.
Dates & Times
April 24-27, 2013
Wednesday, 1:00 pm- Saturday, 12:00 pm, CST
Location & Lodging
The workshops are held at the Bethesda Center located in the Woodmont Hills Church in Nashville, TN. All participants stay together in a nearby hotel, where each person shares a room with another workshop participant. (If a couple is attending, they may choose to room together or separately.) The Bethesda Workshops staff will handle your hotel reservations, and all lodging (excluding any optional nights) and meals are included in your workshop fee.
The schedule is designed so that attendees may fly or drive to Nashville on Tuesday or Wednesday morning. Ideally, if you’re flying, you should arrive in Nashville no alter than 11:30 am CST on Wednesday so you’ll have time to get to the workshop site. The workshop ends at 12:00 pm on Saturday and participants are free to leave then.
You’re strongly encouraged to arrive rested for the workshop.
The Bethesda Workshops home page has a Travel Information link at the top that provides more information. When you register for a workshop, a Travel Form is one of the documents you’ll receive, and that form provides space for you to communicate your travel plans and lodging needs to the Bethesda Workshops staff.
