About Creative Approaches to Self Care:

In order to care effectively for others, we must first learn to care for ourselves. This interdisciplinary series, led collaboratively by 3 creative arts therapists and a poet, is designed to engage students in self-care practices that promote healthy stress management and burnout prevention. Workshops will address topics including how to cope with stress and anxiety, cultivate relaxation techniques, find balance and develop self-compassion.

October 15: Balancing Work and Life

Juggling school along with other life commitments is a challenge that can leave us feeling stressed and pulled in different directions. In this art and movement-based workshop, we will practice exercises that promote an awareness of what balance actually feels and looks like. We will explore setting boundaries, how to prevent burnout, and how to recognize, listen to and meet our own needs.

Instructors: Sondra Rosenberg, ATR-BC; Rebekka Dietrich-Hartwell, DMT-BC, LPC; Adenike Webb, MMT, MT-BC; Cindy Savett

Pre-registration is required. A light dinner will be provided at the beginning of each workshop.
