Journal Workshop for Caregivers
February 4 @ 12:30 pm - 4:00 pmFree
This 2.5-hour guided journal writing workshop is focused on self-care for the caregiver. Family caregivers are subject to significant stress, fatigue and burnout from prolonged care-giving responsibilities. By means of this workshop, participant caregivers will be able to enhance personal empathy, compassion and spiritual centering needed to carry on their caring roles. No writing skills are required and workshop materials are supplied. This workshop is facilitated by Bill Israel in partnership with Family Caregivers of BC (www.familycaregiversbc.ca). Bill is an ordained church pastor, trained as a hospital chaplain. He has practiced as a group and family therapist and is a certified Consultant for the INTENSIVE JOURNAL program of Dr. Ira Progoff.
