Jason recently retired as a facilitator/trainer with Fraser Health’s Group Therapy Services in Mission, where he facilitated workshops and intensive groups for both staff and clients. Prior to that, he was a Clinical Coordinator at the Centre for over 20 years.
He developed Changewerxs from a commitment to the understanding that while knowledge is wonderful, unless knowledge is applied, it is just theory. Practice does not come from Theory. It’s the other way around. We can always obtain knowledge from all different forms of social media. But the application of knowledge, and the continued practice of that, is what facilitates change.
All workshops are interactive, only of a 2-hour duration each and seek to accomplish two objectives. Firstly, it’s predicated on enhancing and deepening group learning through the dynamic and organic sharing of participants’ knowledge and experiences pertinent to the topic at hand. Secondly, in our ‘busy’ lives, a 2-hour workshop helps maintain our attention and focus, keeping it pithy, specific and effective. All workshops are based on the concepts of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), MBCT (Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy) and DBT (Dialetical Behavioural Therapy), among others.
