The Wellness Centre is offering a series of four art therapy sessions this fall for caregivers who have lost a loved one. Art therapist, Sophie Lessard-Latendresse will guide participants as they process and release emotions related to their individual losses while encouraging them to make sense of their feelings. These art therapy sessions will provide a safe place to honor and remember lost loved ones. It can help guide grieving caregivers towards transformation as they allow themselves time to process the significance of this journey.
Please understand that you do not need to have any artistic skills to participate in these sessions and this is not an art class. The actual art making process is more important than the art produced. These sessions provide an opportunity to express emotions on a page, canvas or in a clay sculpture. Participants find relief within the art making experience. All the necessary materials will be provided and safely delivered to your door free-of-charge.
Sessions will be offered virtually. You can access them on your phone, tablet, ipad, latop or computer with webcam. If you need technical assistance, we are here to support you. Group confidentiality is a vital aspect of this process and all participants will be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement upon registration.
