Writing, Mindfulness & Collage between Sessions: Creating a Breathing Space

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 810

Taking time for ourselves in the brief moments between sessions to heal from our therapeutic witnessing is important for clinician self-care. Through mini-collages and short stints of writing, breathing, grounding, and mindfulness meditation, participants will learn new tools to create “space” between these interstices, both literally and figuratively. In this 3-hour multimodal workshop, participants will be invited to create a poem or prose piece, and a mini-collage. No prior writing or collage experience necessary.

Eligible for 3.0 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing
