As part of the Creative Center’s Creative Aging Training program, Anne Mondro and collaborator Elaine Reed will be presenting in NYC on March 12, 2013. The presentation focuses on a caregiver programming model in response to compassion fatigue. Through the use of creative expression, the model is designed to alleviate stress and retain one’s sense of self. Coming from an art perspective, the program integrates art making exercises, guided art discussion, and reflection. These tools provide caregivers with new experiences and ways of communication.
