Our two-day Facilitator Training prepares human service providers to facilitate creative art workshops using a trauma-informed approach. The training incorporates 26 years of best practices in arts programming developed in collaboration with a network of program partners serving communities impacted by violence and trauma.
Attending a Windows Facilitator Training is required in order to hold Windows workshops and receive the full benefits of Community of Practice. Our trainings offer participants a first-hand experience of the transformative benefits of the art process. Individual leadership and innovation is encouraged as participants envision how they will adapt the Windows philosophy to their own style, situation and population. All certified Windows Facilitators receive comprehensive ongoing support so their art programs can be an effective part of their services.
The cost of attending a training, access to the Windows curriculum, ongoing support and eligibility for art supply grants is $2,500. Scholarships are available based upon the annual budget of the potential facilitator’s agency.
