The Institute for Therapy through the Arts is pleased to announce that Executive Director Jenni Rook, MT-BC, LCPC, will be presenting “Yoga and Meditation for Stress Management and Relaxation”. Following a successful September lecture of the same name, Rook will mirror identical learning objectives in a twin presentation for members of the National Association of Social Workers that is scheduled for this March.

Full details about the event may also be acquired from NASW’s Event Calendar.
Yoga and Meditation is set for Friday, March 9, 2018 at 1:30pm. The event will last 2 hours and 30 minutes at ITA’s new location, 2130 Green Bay Road in Evanston. 1.5 CEUs are available with completion.

This experiential workshop will engage therapists in interactive demonstrations while providing a foundation for translating yoga’s many benefits to their clients.
