First Light Wilderness Kicks Off 8 Week Educational Series
First Light Wilderness Therapy, a New Vision Wilderness program located in northern Georgia, is pleased to announce that it will offer an eight-week virtual education series starting on Thursday, January 7th. Professionals from the Family Choice Behavioral Healthcare industry are invited to register and join the clinical and leadership teams of First Light, in partnership with Therapeutic Consultants, Parent Coaches, and Clinical professionals to address topics surrounding the mental health and treatment of adolescents.
To kick off the series, First Light primary clinicians Victoria Nolen, LPC, E-RYT, YF-A, and Emily Smith, MSW, will offer an interactive event on Wednesday, December 30th at 7p ET focused on “Creating your new vision for 2021: The Power of Intention.” This event will require creative engagement on the part of all participants, and pre-registration is required.
Starting in January, educational events will take place on Thursdays at 7 pm Eastern Time. The First Light Team, in partnership with industry professionals, will cover topics ranging from “The CASA Model in Action at Home and in the Woods,” “How Does Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Differ from Traditional Yoga Practices,” and “How to Get Parents to Stop Googling and Start Engaging in Real Treatment,” among others. The First Light Wilderness team is excited about the collaboration with seasoned professionals in the private pay therapeutic program industry to offer well-rounded perspectives on topics affecting mental health treatment of adolescents and families.
Treatment programs, like many other businesses, have had to adapt and change in creative ways during the pandemic, and the opportunities for educational programming and collaboration have only become more widely available as virtual connections have become the norm. The team at First Light Wilderness Therapy is eager to create an engaging forum in which a variety of mental health topics can be richly explored, with the hope of fostering discussions that will help all participants broaden and deepen perspectives on the treatment of adolescents and families during this challenging and unprecedented time.
