More than forty adults and their loved ones joined us on Sunday, December 10, 2017 for the Holiday Social + Second Sunday Group in Los Angeles. The theme of Sunday’s program was Self Care.
The day began with brief introductions and then lead to a healthy lunch. During lunch, guests chatted and played a “human bingo” game driven to learn more about one another and something new about epilepsy. Following lunch, psychotherapist, Laurette Hayden, LMFT, MA led a group discussion sharing suggestions on how to combat and alleviate common challenges, such as stress/anxiety/depression, financial concerns, food/diet and more. To read these tips download the Self Care During the Holidaze handout. The day wrapped up with Sheryl Doering, MFTi, Art Therapist intern, conducting a Studio E: Epilepsy Art Therapy workshop with guests using different mediums to make a gift for themselves, driving home the necessity to take care of oneself.
As one guest shared in her evaluation, she is “thankful and grateful that this program exists.”
