Creativity in Therapy (Christine Campbell, MFT, ATR)
October 20 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
As therapists we can over time see that we are helping. Our clients change, become more at ease with themselves and their world. Yet, on a daily basis we don’t often feel so successful. There are positive moments, but also so much doubt. How do we hold our own vulnerability in the therapeutic relationship? In this salon we will explore the creative process involved oth in making art and in doing therapy, a process that puts us in relationship with ourselves and with the ineffable. In our work, where we must tolerate so much uncertainty, reflecting on this creative process can nurture the capacities and attitudes so critical to our therapeutic process–vulnerability, courage, and humility.
