Embodied Flow Somatic Movement Therapy (EFSMT) ACCG’s Embodied Flow Somatic Movement Therapy (EFSMT) Program is to offer the client either in a group or individual session the ability to enhance mental, emotional, physical, and biological functions to bring optimal well-being and healing.

Art Therapy

El Duende: a one-canvas process painting group focused on self-reflection and awareness which takes clients on an eight-week journey tapping into the world of the unconscious through introspective layering. This is a closed group.


A Bridge to Recovery: group which incorporates psychoeducational materials and creative expression.
 

Open Studio: benefits people experiencing significant social anxiety and/or social isolation for physical, emotional, psychological, mental health, or cultural reasons.  They usually run weekly for at least two hours, for between four to twelve months (longer for more entrenched issues and people with cognitive disabilities). They are designed to fundamentally offer a sense of reliability and engender a sense of safety whilst being facilitatory and respectful of a person's individuality.  They are deliberately low in defined goals, as the aim is to engage, encourage, and empower the members to find their inner artist and value themselves as an equal member of society.  
 

Mask Making: group focused on exploring persona and healing trauma.
 

Altered Book: group focused on what would it look like to write your own story by transforming an old book into a creative expression of oneself. It can be a way to “re-write” the author’s story, or a way to feel that somewhere one’s story is special enough to be “in a book”. 
 

Short-Term Goal-Oriented Group: These Art Therapy groups may be around specific issues such as:

  • Anxiety Reduction

  • Self-Worth and Confidence Improvement

  • Bereavement and Loss

  • Dealing with Difficult Emotions

  • Life Transitions

  • Communication and Social Skills

  • Being with Others, etc.
     

SMI Clients ACCG therapists use Polyvagal Theory, Art Therapy, and Somatic Movement Therapy with SMI clients to reconnect them to themselves and then to healing so they can begin their healing journey.  We have witnessed great success with this population by reconnecting the Vagus nerve, which serves an important role in emotional regulation, social behavior, and fear response.
