In this course you will develop an understanding of your recovery journey through practical creative exercises. We help you select both positive and challenging moments to share through pictures, movement, imagination and sounds. We include relaxation and self-empathy approaches to help build a new way of overcoming challenges. Moments of joy, individually and within the group, become a pattern to be built on during the course.
