Description

Symbols of Hope:

Make your own 3-d mini coping tiles set. No art expereince needed. In this workshop we will focus on symbols and messages of hope which will then be made into your own unique mini tile set to carry with you and refer to for inspiration, meditation, and mindful self-care.

This monthly gathering for therapists and helping professionals will be based on the tenets of art therapy:

  • art making for resiliency

  • art making for self-expression

  • art making for exploration of self

  • art making for processing difficult emotions

  • art making for self-reflection

  • art making for mindfulnes

  • art making to experience a flow state

  • art making for relaxation

This monthly Creative Self-Care for Helping Professionals series are arts based workshops designed to explore different avenues of self-care through a variety of art media and projects. Prompts for self-reflection are included to deepen the experience.



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 (see below for details). We will focus on various art media every month including paints, clay, mixed media, found objects, nature, collage papers and textiles.
