RETREATS

Using Meditation and Mindfulness to Increase Therapeutic Presence in Counseling

Thank you for considering me as a keynoter for your conference or meeting, as a workshop presenter, or as a retreat facilitator.

I am an experienced speaker and presenter and enjoy working with groups who want someone who can convey substantive information using a varied format that allows for participant questions, interaction with colleagues as well as the presenter, and personal growth. I see myself as a consultant and resource for the groups who utilize my services and do everything possible to design and deliver a presentation that meets the needs of all concerned. I have a good sense of humor and ability to illustrate points with concrete examples, which, I am told, make my presentations both enjoyable and practical. I approach topics creatively by incorporating demonstrations, video clips, and participant interaction.

 

As a facilitator of retreats I emphasize the creation of a supportive, growth producing atmosphere that enables participants to benefit fully from a renewal experience. Please click on the links on the top of this page to learn more or call or e-mail with your questions.
 

Dr. Capuzzi is an outstanding presenter who embraced the core issues of youth at risk in a way that was interesting, challenging, and thought provoking.

A varied format including experiential exercises will be used to introduce concepts and illustrate assessment and counseling techniques.
