Creative Coping: An art-based workshop for kids and parents
MDHHS Stay Well Series
It takes time for children to develop emotional intelligence -- the ability to perceive, understand, and manage emotions. Parents can play a key role in this development by helping their child learn the words and feelings associated with various emotions. This series of four online workshops paves the way by involving family members in creative art projects centered around identity, self-awareness, and emotional expression.
The workshops are led by clinical mental health counselor Zeinab Moussa, who has children of her own and loves to get families talking, especially while making art! Her professional background includes providing behavioral and mental health services, special education, and art education.
To participate, all you need is an Internet connection to Zoom and some white paper, scissors, and crayons, markers, or pen/pencil.
Register for as many sessions as you like! All are free of charge.
