Professional Development Opportunities
Self care workshops for care providers
This workshop aims to offer an opportunity to promote, ignite and create sustainable work while supporting others. In the workshop we will offer a safe and creative therapeutic space for participants to develop a personalized tool kit of selfcare strategies. The approach will be arts based explorations and invitations to connect with one´s inner resources and resilience. No experience in the arts necessary.
Both facilitators have extensive experience in trauma informed approaches, with several years in community mental health, doing front line work. We understand first hand challenges of caring for ourselves as we care for others. All of our work takes into account the role the body plays in healing heart and mind. Through our trauma informed arts based lenses we can explore challenging issues in a safe contained way.
Workshops will be booked as groups are formed. You are welcome to inquiry as an individual and also if working within a clinic, community or agency setting please contact us to explore stand alone or multiday workshops for a discounted rate.
