The Creative Journal: An online workshop for people with dissociative disorders
In this art-based workshop, we will explore many ways to use journals for self-expression and healing. We will use different media and techniques in our personal journals including paint, journal prompts, found poetry, collage, making small books and creating pockets to keep things in. To be clear, this is not a therapy group, but rather a workshop, intended for people with dissociative disorders who are able to self-regulate. It is an opportunity to gather in community, while learning various techniques to add to your personal journal. Each session will include time to work on your journal and share what you have created with others in the community. You will need a few art supplies such as markers, crayons, a glue-stick, old magazines, watercolor paints and of course, your journal. Most are easy to obtain at minimal cost. When you sign up, a suggested materials list will be sent to you.
