In order to effectively care for others, we must first learn to care for ourselves. This monthly interdisciplinary workshop series, led collaboratively by three creative arts therapists, is designed to engage Jefferson students in self-care practices that promote healthy stress management and burnout prevention. Workshops will address topics including grounding and relaxation techniques, finding balance, transforming negative emotions, challenging perfectionism and developing self-compassion.
In the first workshop of this series, we will focus on grounding skills. Grounding is a way of anchoring yourself in the present moment. It is the practice of reconnecting to yourself when you are feeling disconnected, using your senses to make contact with the world around you when you are overwhelmed and establishing personal touchstones to remind you of who you are and what is important to you. The group will utilize art, music and movement, and each participant will leave with a set of tools and skills that can be applied as needed throughout the academic year.
