Description

Grief & Loss, Working with Carers

Grief and loss can be a constant companion for those who care for someone who is aged, has a disability, a mental health issue or dementia. Carers very often become socially isolated as they juggle the needs of another with their own needs and old friend and family networks diminish. Explore the carer experience with Art Therapist Jackie Burden, and how an open studio approach can help to explore feelings and reframe.

This is one in a series of meetings of the Art Therapy Peer Group. The group began grassroots in 2014. Today, a core group of qualified attendees welcome new art therapists and trainees to share their own professional and personal journeys. Insight is shared from diverse backgrounds, methodologies, and practice environments. We come together for professional growth, networking, and to refresh energies in a collaborative supportive environment.

Meetings are facilitated on subjects of which we hold passion and skill. This could be trialing an art therapy process to generate critical discussion, knowledge sharing in a specific area, or articulating personal facilitation styles. Attendance to most sessions is encouraged to develop relationships and exchange support. An Open Studio series will be developed alternating with meetings to explore artist / art therapist identities.

Jackie completed her Master of Art Therapy, LaTrobe University (2016) after completing a Bachelor of Visual Arts, Australian National University (Painting) (2014). Her goal is to discover each individual’s material and subject interests and develop therapeutic goals with reference to client diagnosis, personal history, developmental stage and specific challenges such as grief, loss and trauma, and emotional states. Dementia is a special interest – finding ways to discover and honour the person who is still within. Email: jackiej.burden@gmail.com
