The Arts Relief Course of the BuildaBridge Institute is a one-day training course for creative artists, educators, and social service and community workers who want to serve in global areas of crisis. Offered in an alliance with the Red Cross, the course provides training in Psychological First Aid and Arts Relief. This is a hands-on, practical course with experiences designed to give volunteers basic skills for working with those experiencing trauma due to war, disaster, and catastrophe; for supporting local organizations; being a member of a larger relief effort; knowing the role of artists; integrating the arts in relief work; and assessing your impact. The course will include viewing videotaped scenarios, group response exercises, and role plays. Part 1: 8:30- 12:30 PM Psychological First Aid with Dr. Ruth Hoskins (Red Cross volunteer and psychologist); Part 2: 1:30-5:30PM Arts Relief with creative art therapists Christine Wineberg, MA, MT-BC, LPC, and Gene Ann Behrens, Ph.D., MT-BC.
