ENACT Institutes

Since 1987, ENACT has utilized our signature method of creative drama approaches, tackling crucial issues that impact put-at-risk youth and delivering trauma-informed programs that transform learning communities into safe spaces where all students can thrive!

Educators, Administrators, Creative Arts Therapists, Artists, School Counselors, Mental Health Practitioners, Social Workers and others interested in expanding on or developing tools in trauma-informed creative approaches are welcome. Every institute will include concrete take-away tools, interactive activities, and incorporate time for participant questions, discussion, and reflection.

**Now offering NYS Social Work CE credit!!**

Participants will leave workshops with:

  • Concrete and replicable facilitation tools;
  • Tools and exercises that can be tailored to varying ages, disciplines and educational settings;
  • Strengths-based empowerment exercises and vocabulary;
  • A network of like-minded practitioners

Customized Training Institutes

ENACT now offers one, two and three full-day Institutes that provide extended skills training and support for school administration, teachers, and staff. These customized Institutes can focus on topics similar to ENACT Faculty & Staff Workshops or can be adjusted to fulfill the specific training needs of a school community. Taught by registered drama therapists, Institutes delve into the ENACT Curriculum and the philosophy that informs the method. Continuing education and Continuing Teacher & Leader Education (CTLE) credits may be available.
