There is inherent healing power in the creative process of art making. The process of making art is therapeutic. Art making is seen as an opportunity to express oneself imaginatively, authentically, and spontaneously, an experience that, over time, can lead to personal fulfillment, emotional reparation, and transformation.
THE WORKSHOP AGENDA
- The workshop includes a brief talk on how therapists’ mindfulness practices can reduce stress and an over- view of the integrated mindfulness based brain functions.
- Dr. Hass-Cohen will show how informal and formal mindful meditation practices can augment and support art making.
- Participants will experience a mindfulness based Arts Psychotherapy studio experience.
- No artistic talent is needed!
