An Expressive Arts Approach to Healing Loss and Grief

Irene Renzenbrink

The Loss and Grief Practitioners' Association is pleased to host the launch of Irene's latest book.

Drawing on expertise in both expressive arts and grief counselling, Irene's book highlights the use of expressive arts therapeutic methods in confronting and healing grief and bereavement.

With personal and professional insight, Irene illuminates the healing and restorative power of creative arts therapies, as well as addressing the impact of communion with others and the role that expressive as can playin community change.

Covering a broad understanding of grief, the discussion incorporates migration and losing one's home, chronic illness and natural disasters, highlighting the breadth of types of loss and widening our perceptions of this.
