Save the Date: Fall Workshop with Carla Sherrell
We are sponsoring Carla Sherrell for our RM ADTA fall workshop. Carla is a core faculty member of Naropa University’s Somatic Counseling Psychology department. She has been an educational leader for over 30 years as a counselor, teacher, and a social justice facilitator and consultant. She is Co-Executive Director of The Sum, a Colorado nonprofit that supports educational institutions, other nonprofits, and businesses in becoming inclusive communities across ethnic, racial, gender, sexual orientation, religious, and other sociocultural group affiliations & locations. Carla will be offering her expertise on how to bridge the worlds of counseling, body based therapies, and cultural competency. All of the RM ADTA board members agree that if you have not experienced Carla (if you have, you may want more time with her!) , you don’t want to miss this workshop! Carla is a true gift as an elder in our community. The RM ADTA is intentionally hosting this workshop in Denver instead of Boulder. Please join us as we work on making our presence in the community more inclusive and accessible. More details to come on the content of the workshop. See below for logistics:
