Providing services to individuals who experience intense daily challenges can lead to burnout over time, and self-care may be the most powerful coping tool for prevention.

This experiential workshop will build upon your understanding of secondary trauma and explore ways that art can be used to help you cope with work-related stressors and beyond. You will learn the benefits of making art for self-care and have opportunities to practice art exercises to promote resilience during the workshop. Practical ways to consistently integrate art for self-care into your life will also be explored.

What to have: Paper and your choice of available basic drawing materials such as pencils, pens, markers, and/or crayons will be used. No artistic skill is needed!
