Wellness Through Art: Coping with PTSD
January 14 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm$25.00
Wellness Through Art classes are used to reduce debilitating symptoms, provide opportunities for expression and resolution of painful memories, and enhance stress reduction through art-based relaxation techniques and coping skills.
By definition, “Art therapy engages the mind, body, and spirit in ways that are distinct from verbal articulation alone. Kinesthetic, sensory, perceptual, and symbolic opportunities invite alternative modes of receptive and expressive communication, which can circumvent the limitations of language.”
Through the creation of art, Wellness Through Art classes, enrich the lives of individuals and the community and presents a myriad of tools combining the creative process, psychological theory, and the human experience to help individuals cope, blossom, and heal.
About the Instructor: Heather Hostetter, MA, MBA, ATR-BC, LPC is a local Art Therapist and artist with over 25 years of helping the community cope and strive towards wellness with the process of creating together.
Session Fee: $25.00 ($20.00 with Military ID)
Session Length: 90 minutes
