Debbie Mattison, LMSW and Toula Saratsis will describe how rituals can be effective in facilitating expression of deep feelings that have no words, to commemorate meaningful transitions and to provide a space for reflection and renewal. The focus of this workshop is to support practical skill-building regarding the intentional use of therapeutic ritual with individuals, families, and health care providers. Participants will leave the session with an evidence-based rationale for use of rituals as well as ideas for rituals to use both with patients as well as in one’s own professional practice to promote meaning and resilience.
