The events of 2020 have shaken our homes and schools in ways few of us predicted. Amidst a global pandemic and a racial justice movement in our communities, supporting our teachers and students feels all the more critical. Much like educators in schools, we as mental health professionals are called to provide support in ways that stretch us emotionally, physically, and energetically. Supporting others begins by cultivating wellness practices for ourselves. This webinar will explore ways to fuse mindfulness and expressive arts as personal wellness practices, which can in turn serve as tools for helping others in our work environments.
