In this in-person, guided intermodal expressive arts therapy workshop, participants will explore the wildness of suicide grief. The group itself will serve as a container for exploring what individual losses look and feel like.
This session will be led by Heather Prost, a Certified Expressive Arts therapist. Suicide bereaved, themselves, Heather’s main focus is on generating brave spaces where people can build relationships with their grief as well as connect with others in establishing peer to peer support networks.
Participants will have an opportunity to reflect and sit with their grief story, processing their emotions through the arts. We will be utilizing visual arts + “mark-making”, creative writing, and mixed media collage as a guiding tool to generate personalized expressions of grief.
You do not need to have any experience with art to attend this workshop.

Stream-of-conscious creative writing, collage, and mark-making
