How can the creative arts improve the care we give to people with a life-limiting diagnosis and at the end of life?

This workshop will seek to provide answers to this question. Creative therapy can have an important role in responding to people’s spiritual and psychological distress. The workshop offers participants the opportunity to learn more about the different creative arts therapies offered here at St Christopher’s.

You’ll have the opportunity to discover how these therapies have been used in palliative care. The workshop will also encourage you to consider how elements of these therapies might be used in your own setting.

What will I learn?

Topics will include:

  • What is music and art therapy
  • Creating a safe space for self-expression
  • Creative arts and interpersonal connection
  • An opportunity to ask questions of an experienced therapist

This workshop will take place at St Christopher’s CARE in Sydenham.

The course is appropriate for all Nurses, Nursing Associates, Healthcare Assistants, Care Home Managers, Therapists and other Allied Health Professionals looking to learn more about how creative arts could be implemented within their workplace.

Tutor information coming soon.
