Change and transition can be hard. The process can be filled with unexpected and unpleasant emotions - especially if we didn't choose to make the change. In this session, we’re inviting you to experience how art and the creative process can help us (and others) be more reflective, and make new and different meaning of life’s transitions. No matter what the change—big or small—we need to bring to light the fears, concerns, thoughts, and joys in the journey.

Join us to:

·         Engage in an interactive session, exploring the creative process and the stages of transition

·         Build your own tool set through peer discussion and idea-generation

·         Experience a new way to assist your clients in managing change
