Self Care for Educators

Wed, 09/20/2023 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm
Join Ashley Witherspoon, founder of Hand Made Dreams and Art Wellness Exchange and JSMA museum educators in this free, 90-minute self-care exploration session created for educators. This program will be remote via Zoom.
Educators, faculty, and staff have been faced with a multitude of challenges within the last couple of years. This self-care workshop will explore the emotional and physical signs of burnout, the unintended consequences that follow, and the commitment to establish realistic expectations to maintain a balance between work demands and personal life commitments.
We will be spending time independently and as a group, surveying a chosen artwork and with guidance identify how it relates to the experience of burnout and life experiences based on emotional response.  We will convene again in small groups and then reflect together using mental wellness tools shared by our facilitator, Ashley Witherspoon MSW LCSW.
Funding for the workshop has been made possible by the Tykeson Family Foundation
