You will learn how to boost your resilience with expressive writing. You will probably be better at your job, and you might think of some of the people you serve who might benefit. But mostly this is for you for 90 minutes to help you move to a better frame of mind. Our website ( has a page of writing resources called Caring for Caregivers (www.poetryheals/caregivers) that you are welcome to check out in advance.
