THERAPEUTIC PHOTOGRAPHY FOR FEMALE CANCER SURVIVORS By Dimitra Ermeidou
In this free workshop, participants will explore ways to visualize their thoughts and feelings through photography. Sharing, looking at, taking, and discussing photographs will be our main activities, in a process that encourages improvisation, play and collaboration. Ultimately, our goal is to develop new insights about ourselves, strengthen our coping resources, and focus towards future hopes and aspirations.
