Corporate PREVENTION program

Wear a new hat to reach your full potential!

Program objectives

The main goal of the PREVENTION program is to curb burnout by giving employees outlets to overcome their challenges. We use tools to promote a balanced lifestyle, reduce tension and increase energy.

Here’s how the program reduces stress:

Distraction – The program helps participants take their minds off whatever is bothering them

Immersion – Being completely focused on artistic expression is similar to meditation and has many benefits

Self-care – Bodily awareness and the joy of creating promote balance in all areas of participants’ lives

Self-therapy – Expressing emotions through art provides relief and helps participants manage stress.

 

Mental illness affects people in all professions and walks of life, regardless of age or educational background.
After the home, the workplace is where people spend most of their time – it’s no surprise that it has such a significant impact on their health and well-being!
With this in mind, the program is designed for employees who feel the need for professional support to prevent mental illness or relapse. Our target client group doesn’t need to have any artistic talent to reap the full benefits of the program.

How it works: customized workshops!

The PREVENTION program includes four different customized workshops that address each aspect of mental illness prevention. Four experienced artists/facilitators and therapists will work with participants:

Lawrence Smythe  Theatre workshop

Sarah Dell’Ava – Painting/movement workshop

Daniel Bellegarde – Interactive drumming workshop

Yvon Lamy or Maude Robinson – Art therapy workshop

Each workshop lasts 8–10 weeks. PREVENTION program participants can choose to take part in one or more workshops per quarter. After a full year, participants will have taken at least three workshops and accrued nearly 60 hours of therapy, or more!

ART THERAPY WORKSHOP

This activity involves using the theatre as therapy, prevention or to foster personal development. Focusing on self-awareness and interpersonal relationships, this workshop lets participants explore their various roles (parent, employee, colleague, friend, etc.) and the duties and values involved to promote a better balance.

This playful process uses a humanist approach that encourages mutual respect and consideration for each individual’s specific challenges.

Number of participants: 10

Duration: 2 hours/week

When: TBD

Who: LAWRENCE SMYTHE

In this workshop, the facilitator supports participants in a playful and creative process. The goal is to help them have an engaging and pleasant experience. This helps reduce stress and negative thoughts. In this activity, you can express yourself through gesture at your own pace, while being patiently coached to develop a personalized production.

You’ll learn techniques to expand upon your project; the goal isn’t to perform. Through experimentation, you’ll discover the pleasure of embodying an idea or emotion.
