The Capacitar training programme will share research, methodology, field experiences and body-mind-spirit practices found to be effective in working with individuals and communities, as well as for self-care by therapists health professionals, caregivers and group leaders.
The programme of wellness practices, developed by Patricia Cane and used by Capacitar trainers, was designed to give people skills to heal and transform stress and pain resulting from illness, violence, and the stress of daily life.
The energy practices have been used effectively with a variety of people and cultures including seniors, women and families at risk, indigenous, refugees, prisoners, survivors, the disabled, religious, psychologists, social workers, educators and medical professionals.
The workshops share a popular education approach to healing that places practices in the hands of individuals and communities to empower people in their own process. The grassroots educational approach is designed to reach large numbers of people who do not have access to individual therapy.
