Rosen, JamieJamie Harris Rosen

Jamie Harris Rosen is an Expressive Arts Therapist, Freelance Artist, Educator, Restorative Justice Practitioner, and Peacemaker. For the past decade, she has been developing and utilizing an innovative community-based healing model, intertwining Expressive Arts, Somatics, Restorative Justice, and Trauma-Informed Care. She uses this multi-disciplinary approach with nonprofits, educational institutions, humanitarian organizations, and for-profit enterprises, to help them tap into their multiple intelligences, innate wisdom and imagination to resolve conflict and cultivate long-term resilience and well-being.  She recently co-founded The Creatives PATCH- Play and Arts-based Tools for Change and Healing (www.thecreativesPATCh.com). The primary focus is on building a safe container for the playful, artistic and sensory-based exploration that is needed to bridge cultural differences, break down old patterns/barriers and create new insights and just ways of being from the inside out. Jamie particularly enjoys supporting those struggling with special needs, grief and trauma, including immigrants /refugees, veterans, unsheltered youth/families, the incarcerated, and families navigating disabilities and chronic illness. Jamie has been a trainer and circle facilitator at NCRC since 2017.

Hobbies & Interests

Like many of my fellow Virgos, I am a keen lover of art and beauty and I have to get those creative juices movin’ and groovin’. Find me sketching and painting in a brilliant mountain meadow, dancing barefoot by a noisy stream or beach, singing out of tune as I prepare a Thai feast. Art is my North star! When it comes to R&R, find me in the company of friends and family around the dinner table or fire ring. I Never go half a day without tumbling and cuddling with my beloved Australian Shepherd.
