By creating art in Windows workshops, participants are provided a safe environment to express themselves and tell their stories, build resilience, identify and name emotions, self-regulate, gain a stronger sense of self-worth and much more.

AWBW trains staff at partnering human service providers to facilitate these trauma-informed hands-on workshops. We support Windows Facilitators in a variety of ways, including access to over 500 workshops in our ever-evolving curriculum and ongoing consultations.

Facilitators share back successes, challenges and innovations in relation to the workshops they hold. This feedback contributes to the greater expertise of AWBW’s community of partner agencies and facilitators across the country.
