Writing for Wellbeing & Personal Development for the Caring Professions
November 13, 2021 @ 12:00 am - February 12, 2022 @ 12:00 am£25 – £35
These new set of Storied Selves workshops are specifically designed for those who work with/are training to work with, other people in a therapeutic capacity, including those in healthcare, social care, charity and voluntary sectors.
Led by Dr Roshni Beeharry, experienced Medical Educator,poet, writer and Writing for Wellbeing facilitator and former NHS Consultant with 18 years experience of working in the NHS, these workshops aim to provide a safe, supported and confidential space within a small group online environment (2-8 people), to explore your personal and professional experiences caring for others, and thinking more about how you can care for yourself.
We will do this using a carefully designed blend of creative, expressive and reflective writing, drawing on poetry therapy and journaling and other techniques, using poetry, prose and mixed media as a stimulus for your writing, reflections and discussion.
Each Saturday workshop is held on Zoom and lasts two hours long (11:00-13:00 GMT),including a short break, to allow time for writing, and sharing the writing process +/- extracts of your writing, and for discussion.
Each workshop is based on relevant themes for those caring for others in a therapeutic capacity, to encourage a focus on your own wellbeing needs:
13th November 2021: Compassion begins at home
11th December 2021: Celebrating our differences
13th January 2022: Finding your space and place
12th February 2022: The Rhetoric of Resilience
