Event Description

Holistic healing is a growing area of research and practice in social work and the helping professions. Laurier’s Faculty of Social Work Professional Development Program is hosting a Holistic Practices Conference that will bring together over a dozen experts from both the field and academia to discuss and demonstrate a range of holistic practices. Throughout the two days, you’ll have the opportunity to learn about various innovative approaches to holistic healing from theoretical, research and practice perspectives. This experiential event will focus on how practitioners and agencies can incorporate the innovative and growing field of holistic healing approaches into their work and lives.

Some of the topics to be discussed include: Indigenous healing for immigrants and refugees, meditative techniques, Somatic Experiencing, expressive arts, connections with nature and animals and transpersonal techniques.
