Being Heard: A Creative Healing Program Using the Arts takes place this weekend

Being Heard: A Creative Healing Program takes place this Saturday at the Omaha Home for Boys.

Rita Paskowitz is the Director of the Storytelling workshop.  She says this weekend’s program is geared toward at-risk youth.  

Paskowitz says the purpose of creative healing is to get people to work through their grief using the arts.  Workshops in storytelling, music, movement, poetry and visual arts will be offered on Saturday.  

Paskowitz says it is sometimes easier for those who are grieving to express themselves through the arts. 

"When you look at the art or the poetry or even the stories that come out of kids in trouble, it’s amazing how they just open up in ways that you wouldn’t get them to do otherwise, just from conversation"

Being Heard: A Creative Healing Program takes place at 8:00 a.m. this Saturday at the Omaha Home for Boys.  More information is available online at creativehealingworkshops.com.
