The Caregiver Project with Susan Wingert and Sue Reynolds

May 12, 2023 at 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT

Free – $20.00

An online workshop facilitated in the AWA method, offering a safe space for caregivers to connect, express themselves and experience writing with a group of peers living with both the joys and challenges that come along with caring for other(s).

These workshops are designed to reduce isolation, stress and overwhelm for those who provide care on a personal level and/or as a professional care provider.


 

Sue Reynolds is a psychotherapist, a writer and a writing facilitator passionate about the Amherst Writers and Artists method. She is both past president of the Writers Community of Durham Region and past vice-president of the national Canadian Creative Writers and Writing Programs (Canada’s version of the AWP).
