Avoiding Practitioner Burnout: Resiliency Trees

Sat, August 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

« All Events

As part of the Art Colony’s 2024 theme of Art + Embodiment, we have partnered with Cook County Care Partners to look at the Art of Health under the topic of Memory Care. This experiential-based hands on workshop invites any area practitioners working in healthcare and caregiving spaces to explore personal resilience and strength. Whether you are a social worker, a physician, a therapist, or working in physical or occupational therapy, this session is for you. CEUs are available.

During this workshop Erin will employ creative and artistic engagement, a trauma-informed approach used to mitigate the common impact of burnout and secondary trauma experienced. Creativity provides a safe and supportive resource for sustaining and maintaining practitioner’s overall health and wellbeing. Exploring the metaphor connected to resiliency, participants will create their own 3-dimensional tree of strength. No artistic skills required, the session is designed to be successful for all experience levels. Art materials and creative tools and resources for sustaining overall health and wellness will be provided.

This session is hosted in partnership with Cook County Care Partners and their Memory Cafe program. It is part of a grant project called: The Art of Health: Memory Care. Grant funds generously provided by the North Shore Health Care Foundation. See the other two free workshops that Erin will facilitate in connection with this grant funding.

This session is free but advanced registration is requested.
