With Jesse Wilson
CEO of Tell The Winning Story and Lessons From The Stage
What does the 1 day workshop entail?
The Power of The Mask
The radical shift from Old Story to New Story
“When you remove the mask, you set the stage for the greater story to begin…” – Jesse Wilson
Therapists, counselors, and recovery staff will experience, learn, and apply the ground breaking methods from the stage that have been used to transform prisoners and inmates lives into their practice.
The Lessons From The Stage are designed to help clients in recovery discard old, destructive ways of thinking and step into their new, more powerful roles through the timeless tools of the theater.
Working with the mask has become an instrumental tool utilized in Narrative Therapy.
Journeying through the 3 Acts of Lessons From The Stage in Recovery, all attendees of the workshop will be armed with powerful and effective tools to be able to help their clients be empowered to re-frame and release “the old story” with compassion and forgiveness and learn how our greatest obstacles can be our greatest teachers as they begin the process of stepping into a new story…”The Greater Story.”
“As an owner of a treatment facility specializing in the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction, it is critical to stay up to date on the most effective and cutting edge advancements in behavioral healthcare. Recently, I have felt that there was a large gap in the methodologies and approaches available to treat the core of addiction. Much is done to combat the effects of addiction as well as to look at some of the outside stimuli that addicts often encounter throughout their lives, but there has been little advancement in the treatment of the internal motivation that all addicts deal with which drive them to pick up alcohol and drugs and continue to use in the face of overwhelming consequences. Lessons From The Stage fills that void by providing a safe and creative format for individuals struggling with drug and alcohol addiction to look inward and challenge the internal dialogue that each of them experience throughout their lives. Participants report that this offers them the ability to understand their motivation and tendency to abuse drugs and alcohol in a way they were not able to before, which creates a lasting impact by building a strong foundation to change the way they view themselves.” — Shawn Henley, Co-Founder and Administrator, Red Rock Recovery Center
