“Inside Out” Group
Fridays from 4:15-5:15p.m.
February 5th-26th

The “Inside Out” group is an expressive arts group led by our clinical expressive arts intern, Amber Smith (M.A. expected 5/16), to help support emotional and social skills in children ages 5-10. The expressive arts are a multimodal approach to group therapy that include play, writing, drama, dance, movement, painting, and/or music. Through the expressive arts children will identify, explore and share emotions in a cohesive group of peers that fosters universality and interpersonal learning. Each week we will explore emotions and outcomes and children will learn fun ways to regulate their emotions and nervous system through play and art.

Location: The Mariposa Center 2680 18th St., Suite 100 Denver, CO 80211

Cost: $10 per session or $15 per family
