U-M Counseling and Psychological Services

CAPS is hosting a virtual 60-min expressive healing workshop for students. In this workshop we will learn to use expressive art as a means of processing and understanding our complex feelings around the upcoming election, navigating multiple pandemics, and building a sense of community and connection with one another.

Facilitators will provide specific prompts to help jumpstart the creative process and help guide discussion. Please know you do not need to be an artist to participate. It’s about the process, not the product.

Materials needed: Paper and pen/pencil.
Participants may also use crayons, colored pencils, markers, etc.

Please feel free to join one or both sessions:

Dates:  Monday, 10/26 @ 12-1p

According to the American Art Association (2020), creative expression allows us to explore our feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior, develop social skills, and help reduce anxiety.
