June 9, 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

conference-logo-PTHC

Workshop at the Philadelphia Trans Health Conference

Description:

Trauma, whether it is from childhood abuse, losing a job, intimate partner violence, ableism, compassion fatigue, etc. can inform the ways that we structure our lives. We tend to build coping techniques that we may or may not find helpful and we do so in order to protect ourselves from future and/or past traumatic experiences. Many of us are both survivors as well as social change agents who know the power art can have both in our minds and in the revolution. What if you could build a trauma-informed artist’s life that could help you sustain balance and reduce trauma daily as well as over the long-term? In this art-therapy-style workshop, we will discuss the many ways you can reduce trauma by building a life of art and trauma-informed mindful practices. The workshop will include some of FORGE’s most recent self-help and therapy publications as well as other resources and guides. Participants will leave with a plan of action to get them started as well as a few art goodies to keep them inspired! Both survivors and non-survivors are welcome to attend to learn more about self-healing practices.
