The T.O.N.E. Project (Therapy Outside Normal Environments) – Therapy that Resonates
Emerging research increasingly points to how men and boys respond positively to non-traditional methods used in therapy (or related supportive contexts). What are some of the unique mental health needs of boys and young men? The T.O.N.E. Project was a two-year group therapy endeavor exploring innovative ways to better address these needs in Nova Scotia.
This fun and interactive workshop will introduce you to practical tools, strategies and resources to deepen engagement of our youth (reducing attrition rates, strengthening alliance, deepening insight, etc.) by introducing experiential and adventure-based methods into your work.
