Catharsis: Release through expressive art

Support for busy professionals in dealing with vicarious trauma/ burnout through expressive art

Do you feel run down, exhausted, burnt out? It is important to recognise the signs of burnout:

  • Loss of motivation and energy.
  • Feeling helpless or hopeless, as if your work is pointless.
  • Chronic fatigue.
  • Becoming overly cynical.
  • Becoming “closed off” to any input.
  • Irritability or quickness to anger.
  • Depression or anxiety.

Being a professional can be a difficult job as practitioners are often required to work with emotional, vulnerable and distressed people. It’s important to have reliable self-care tools to avoid burnout, as the biggest demand on you is ongoing stress.

This intensive workshop is designed to support professionals deal with vicarious trauma/ burnout through expressive arts for ongoing self-care.

The workshop teaches participants to understand the importance of self-care, strengthen the connection with their sense of inner regulation and release stress through artistic catharsis.

The workshop will assist participants to discover and experience effective tools for self-care using art therapy – connecting, grounding and revitalising from within.

The workshop incorporates a combination of expressive art therapies, somatic experiencing and mindfulness approaches. The workshop offers experiential exercises, self-inquiry, painting/drawing, creative journalling and the opportunity for self-reflection.
