Professional Retreats

Evoke’s Professional Growth Retreats are for professionals working in the therapeutic and recovery communities. Participants will work on issues related to their roles in these fields, while also addressing relevant issues from their personal life that may be affecting their ability to maintain a healthy, balanced relationship between work and home.

These reoccurring annual groups are single-gender, by invitation only, and are facilitated by professionals with leadership experience in the therapeutic industry. Since these groups will be reoccurring, the peer group offers individuals ongoing support beyond their annual participation. Programming involves psychodrama, mindfulness practice, leadership training, and peer-to-peer support.
