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.

We all have inner critics that compare how we are with how we think we should be. While this tendency to judge and evaluate ourselves can be a source of motivation, it can also undermine our sense of self-worth and make us feel “not good enough” in many areas of our lives. This workshop will focus on how to shift from viewing yourself through a lens of criticism to a lens of compassion. We will utilize art and movement to challenge perfectionism and promote self-acceptance.

Instructors: Peggy Tileston, MA, MT-BC; Sondra Rosenberg, ATR-BC; Rebekka Hartwell, MA, BC-DMT, LPC.
