  Healing Collaborations: Caregivers and Artists Working Together  
(Arts)

Free; registration required. For more information and to register, visit healingcollaborations.eventbrite.com

For artists and healthcare workers; explore the application of the arts to caregiving in this open workshop.

Inspired to provide caregivers with a creative outlet for the stresses of their profession while cultivating greater communication and understanding, Suzanne Costello and Stuart Pimsler of Stuart Pimsler Dance & Theater developed their program, Caring for the Caregiver. Since its inception, SPDT has presented these programs throughout the United States, Canada, Israel, Russia, Taiwan, Bermuda, and Mexico. The participants from across the globe represent a broad cross-section of the healthcare community, including physicians, nurses, medical students, hospice staff, social workers, therapists, counselors, and home healthcare providers.

By exploring the power of touch and movement to help people communicate and connect with others, these workshops seek to foster stronger relationships and understanding among teams of staff members as well as between caregivers and their patients. Through the integration of movement and voice, memories and stories, participants explore ways to express feelings associated with their profession. Caregivers are encouraged to share their personal stories and reflections on how they provide support in their daily work. Together they explore a series of improvisational movement and writing exercises at their own level of skill and comfort. No prior movement experience is required. Please wear comfortable clothing.
