The Clinic Workshops
About our workshops
We believe mindfulness coupled with the arts, movement, play, and wonder can disrupt our normal patterns and offer time and space to see ourselves and others truly. When present with ourselves and others, we can see and acknowledge shuddering and respond authentically in connection with compassion. This is what we offer in our workshops.
Through playful investigation and thoughtful reflection, this 6-week interactive workshop invites nurses into a strengths-based collaboration with local artists, dancers, and musicians as they imagine new ways of working, being, and caring in hospital settings. Drawing from research-driven practices, personal narratives, and Koloroutis and Trout’s See Me as a Person; Improving the Patient Experience, this workshop will creatively combat compassion fatigue from within as a way of creating lasting, systemic change.
