NJ Center for the Healing Arts Programs

I’m reaching out to share with you that the NJ Center for the Healing Arts, in Red Bank, is offering new therapy groups and healing arts classes/events for children, adolescents, and adults. Our groups offer a variety of integrative therapeutic modalities, including play, expressive arts, mindfulness, movement, sand tray, and various community based experiences. Below is a short synopsis of each of our new groups and events and attached to this email are flyers with additional information.

Express Yourself  is a group for children ages 8-12 to connect, create, and communicate. The goal is to implement coping strategies and a supportive environment for children experiencing anxiety/impulse control.  A different theme will be explored each week through various creative modalities.  This therapeutic group will meet for six weeks, starting on June 9th from 12-1:30PM.

Exploring identity is a group for all teens (boys/girls/LGBTQ) ages 13-17 who may struggle with issues relating to self-identity, academic stress, emotional resiliency, social expectations, and feeling misunderstood. This group will meet for six weekly sessions on Wednesday’s from 6:30-8PM starting on June 20th. 

Awakening Intuition is an empowerment group for young women aged 18-24 that are interested in cultivating an environment of compassion, resilience, humility, and radical acceptance. This group will focus on becoming aware of one’s own thoughts, emotions, and body to gain a better sense of control. Six sessions starting on Wednesday June 20th, from 5-6:30pm.

Artful Qi Gong is a new integrative class for children ages 7-12 and will include Qi Gong instruction and creative arts activities. Classes will be offered on Mondays starting in July at 10 am and 6pm for one hour. We are offering two free trial experiences for those who are interested, on June 30th at 11am-12pm, and 4pm-5pm.  

ArtWorks: An Open Studio for Creative Expression is an open studio that will be offered on the second floor of our counseling center. Specific days and times to be determined.
