We are all affected by our current situation during this pandemic of COVID-19. It is important that we practise self-care during this stressful time. With the emphasis on social distancing, a lot of our regular activities and work situations are now disrupted. Working from home can be great and give you a lot of flexibility in your daily life. Be creative and keep your presence alive! Explore new ideas and ways to do this! This potentially will assist everybody from being lonely and isolated.
As professional art therapists, we are innately creative individuals as are our clients. This time will challenge us to tap into that creativity and look for solutions to problems we didn’t envision existed.
Within the art therapy community, we will be stronger for the challenges we will over come. We are all on this journey. Now is a time for us to work together and call on each other as resources – we are stronger together than we are apart.
Here at VAT, we are hoping that you keep yourself safe and well during this unprecedented coronavirus pandemic.
