___________________________

Coming up in March:

• March 11—Insight Improv with Children (2.5 hrs)
• March 25-28—Exploring Authentic Impulse (3.5 hrs x 4 sessions)

Insight Improv with Children
Facilitated by Joel Gluck, with Orapin Siriwilairak

“As always, great structure for the session. I find that the mix of theory and activities and the pacing are just right... The same way improv and mindfulness and therapy are unique in how they cut through the noise of what society expects, they can be really important tools in cutting through what parents expect of their children and connecting with the real child.”

— participant, Insight Improv with Children online

With the plethora of digital distractions, it can be hard for today's parents to find activities for the family which bring them together in fun yet meaningful ways, that encourage family members to be present with one another, play together, and share real feelings with one another. Insight Improvisation offers a wonderful set of ideas and tools for doing just that.

Designed especially for parents with primary and middle-school aged children (ages 5-13)—but also filled with new inspirations for clinicians, teachers, and others working with children—this program introduces a wide range of ideas and techniques, including ways of meditating with children, moving together, improvising in fun new ways, and techniques for engaging in mindful dialogue as a family. We will share stories and examples from our own experiences as a family, and reserve time for experiential practice, discussion, and Q&A.

Join us!—You do not need to be a parent, therapist, or educator to attend—this workshop is open to anyone age 21 or older interested in the topic.

Exploring Authentic Impulse
Facilitated by Joel Gluck

“I loved all of the activities! This workshop awakened me to receive love unconditionally.... All of the meditations [and exercises] really helped deepen one's sensitivity.”

— participant, Exploring Authentic Impulse

How can one listen to oneself more deeply, quiet the mind, and understand and follow one's intuition? This program takes a deeper dive into the concepts and exercises in Part I of the Insight Improvisation Book, helping to develop one's capacity for inner listening and the ability to follow authentic impulse. We will explore the mover and witness roles in authentic movement in greater depth, as well as introduce new mindfulness-based, creative and expressive exercises and alternative approaches to meditation. This program is appropriate for meditators, mental health professionals, educators, performing artists, and others seeking an opportunity for greater self-awareness, understanding, and ability to apply mindfulness both in their work and in daily life. (Prerequisite: Life Drama Part Two or a basic familiarity with authentic movement and meditation.)

All online programs begin at 9:30 AM ET (Boston time) on Zoom; each session is followed by an optional 30 minute discussion period.

06/27/2022

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted social tensions and systemic oppression throughout the US, further limiting spaces for individuals with marginalized identities to find full expression and reclaim their human agency. ♥️

A sharp increase in anti-trans rhetoric, legislation, and violence throughout the US threatens the lives of the most vulnerable members of the q***r community.
The NADTA wants to honor this legacy. The movement cannot be separated from the liberation of q***r and trans people. ♥️

We argue for holistic, participatory, inclusive, and emancipatory mental health approaches that integrate rights, multiple social dimensions, and diverse sources of knowledge and lived experiences, while promoting equity for all.

The NADTA is excited to announce the Keynote Guest for our 43rd Annual Conference. We welcome Dr. Jaye Austin Williams as our in-person speaker!

Dr. Jaye Austin Williams is Assistant Professor and Interim Chair (’22-’23) of the Dept. of Critical Black Studies at Bucknell University. A critically acclaimed actor, director and playwright for thirty years, she now specializes in the (often fraught) melding of drama, cinema, performance, q***r and feminist theories with critical Black studies. Her research and teaching focus on the structural and global implications of antiblackness, its emanation from the collective unconscious and its myriad performances, both subtle and overt, within global modernity. She is the author of numerous publications, and is currently completing a monograph entitled, Staging (Within) Antiblack Violence: Toward a Radical Black Dramaturgy.
