Marion Green

Marion's first profession was social work. She specialised in working in schools and with groups of adolescents including co-facilitating a greenhouse project for non- attenders; in child protection and in all aspects of adoption.

She later studied biodynamic gardening at Emerson College East Sussex and went on to work in Central America with illiterate women, creating medicinal and nutritional gardens and promoting women's self-esteem.

Marion graduated 2000 from Hibernia School of Artistic Therapy, Stroud; an anthroposophical art therapy training. Marion's art therapy experience has been in prisons, with sex workers, traumatised adolescents, the chronically sick and dying, in adult acute and intensive psychiatric care and with offenders in the community.

She currently supports workers working with marginalised women, supervises therapists working in hospices and with trafficked women and has a small private practise offering individual Intensive Trauma Therapy (L. Gantt and L. Tinnin model WV. USA) and Burnout Recovery programmes.

She is a visiting tutor at Tobias School of Art and Therapy, East Sussex and at Bath City College Foundation for Art Therapy.

Marion facilitates workshops and teaches courses on Working with Traumatised people, Self-Care: Burnout, Secondary Trauma, Resilience and Maintaining Professional Vitality, Working in Secure and Forensic Environments and on Working with people who have Addictions.
