Dr Aoife Earls - Creativity and Play for Clinicians: Becoming our own advocates in self-care - Symposium 2021
As health care professionals, our role is to provide support and direction for others. It can leave us at the brink of burnout, exhausted and grieving the loss of our own unrecognized needs or the needs we did not anticipate in our giving.
There is much discussion around polyvagal theory and bringing balance to the body through activities that restore a sense of nervous system safety; mindfulness, forest bathing, and exercise, however little is mentioned around the powerful and useful aspects of creativity and play as ways to regulate the nervous system as well.
This session will explore the research surrounding these topics, and you will also get your hand active in their practice! Bring your attention and an open-mind to a session that will give you some surprising insights for yourself and your practice.
