At Creative Coping, we facilitate workshops–online and in person–on topics such as managing change, integrating artistic expression into one’s healing, and building support systems.

In 2020, we conducted online workshops with the Lenfest Institute’s Equity initiatives, with refugees and HIAS Pennsylvania, with psychologists on mental health, with women artists on healing, with author Dr. Betty Sue Flowers on ‘The Shape of Stories,’ and author Arthur Kurzweil on mysticism.

Creative Coping brings a unique, value-added approach by combining evidence-based research, trauma-informed care, life stories and case scenarios, plus compassion and an authentic dose of humor.

Creative Coping offers resources and inspiration to help individuals build support systems while also addressing systemic challenges. We believe that people are connected, that we affect one another, and that we can lift each other up as well as bring each other down. 

What’s next at Creative Coping?

In 2021, we are delighted to deliver workshops to social workers, artists, and faith groups. All workshops are interactive. Workshops combine elements of clinical practice, life stories or case examples, and employ creativity to help people manage transitions and live our best lives.

You can commission a workshop for your community group and have it tailored for your needs.
