During the 2010 National Sexual Assault Conference, which took place in Hollywood Sept. 1-3, there were more than 80 workshops. As a part of the Wellness Track — sponsored by the Joyful Heart Foundation — there was a workshop called The Joy Diet (Self-Care for Advocates).
This workshop was designed for advocates, crisis workers, counselors and others seeking to infuse their day with joy. Exploring strategies for self-care through creative expression, heart-felt conversation and interactive exercises, the presenter provided participants with a much needed self-care break. This session demonstrated the power of art for healing, outreach, education and community building/transformation.
Presenter: Marta Laura Sanchez
