Make self-care and professional growth a priority by connecting with other helping professionals and making art in a supportive environment.

According to the Canadian Counseling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) therapists have a “professional responsibility” to “maintain high standards of professional competence and ethical behavior, and recognize the need for continuing education and personal care in order to meet this responsibility” Canadian Counseling and Psychotherapy Association, 2007, p.5

College of Registered Psychotherapists competencies addressed:

1.4 Integrate awareness of self in relation to professional role.

3.3 Maintain self-care and level of health necessary for responsible therapy.

Please note: a certificate of participation will be provided upon request for continuing education purposes.

Join me for a monthly 2 hour self-care workshop series for therapists and helping professionals. Each session we will explore a different self-care themed art project. We will focus on various art media every month including paints, clay, mixed media, found objects, nature, collage papers and textiles.
