Evoke Therapy Programs to Run Its First Young Adult Intensive
Evoke therapeutic Intensives are aimed at adults looking to deepen their self-knowledge or overcome present challenges through examining their pasts. Younger adults have challenges and concerns that are markedly different from older, more established adults. This June 10-13, Evoke Therapy Intensives will host a weekend-long therapeutic Intensive aimed exclusively at young adults aged 18-26. This retreat is shorter than Evoke’s cornerstone program, Finding You, to accommodate the busy summer schedule of young adults.
The Young Adult weekend is perfect for those struggling to find their way in college or university, those who have been the sibling of an identified patient, those who are experiencing a failure to launch, and those who want to set goals and look deeper into the question of, “Who am I?” The weekend will focus on goal-setting, beginning to find clarity and purpose, understanding codependence versus interdependence, setting healthy boundaries, and creating contentment in a world where social media and outside expectations make it very difficult.
“We know that young people entering adulthood often have needs and goals that differ from our average middle-aged participant. We consistently get inquiries from young people wanting to do their own work but Finding You, our individual program, sometimes doesn’t fit exactly what that age group is seeking,” says Sara Carroll, Evoke Intensives program director. Carroll says that’s why Evoke created this shortened, more economical, summer program –to allow Gen Z-ers to come together to discuss issues relevant to them exclusively. Additionally, Evoke has intentionally staffed this program with younger therapists and a younger logistics team.
Over three days, clients will participate in guided yoga, experiential activities, art therapy, group processing, one-on-one sessions with a therapist, day hiking in the picturesque Heber Valley, and more. Ground transportation, all meals, and accommodations are included in the price. Interested individuals can email Intensives@EvokeTherapy.com for more information.
The Intensive will be held at the Alpenglow Inn, a beautiful 9,000-square-foot space in the heart of the Heber Valley, with the Wasatch mountains, Cascade Springs, Deer Valley, and Park City nearby. The inn features fireplaces, well-appointed rooms, a game room, a dedicated yoga room, and outdoor spaces with comfortable seating and firepits.
