Presented by Ursula Jorgensen, ATR-BC, LMFT

Includes continental breakfast and 2 CE credits.
In person ONLY. No online option and no recording.

Every mental health professional usually has some experiences both personal and professional that inspires them to work in trauma and the healing of it. We do our best to bring our knowledge, experience, and passion to help others in the work. But Covid has made it increasing hard to use that same compassionate wisdom on own self care or honor the many roles we play in our daily lives. We are the coach, counselor, child, adult, friend, office manager, taxi driver, or partner to many people that we love at home or in our care during office hours. This workshop is to share an overview of art therapy versus art in therapy with a primary focus on self. The participant will gain experiential knowledge about spending time with themselves using a compassionate reverence for the many roles we play to others and ourselves. The presentation is aimed at mental health professionals that could use a little TLC (tender loving compassion) on the self. Free art supplies will be shared at the end of the presentation. 

You don't need to bring anything - all will provided. No prior experience is necessary, just a willingness to have some fun in a small community setting.

Free art supplies will be available for the first 50 sign ups!
