The Creativity and Wellness workshop will involve self-reflective activities to promote personal growth and wellness. Participants will have a chance to co-create by drawing, mind-mapping, journalling, and sharing stories. The workshop will be interactive and fun!

She has taught in the School Psychology Program in Applied Psychology and more recently in Adult Education and Counseling Psychology at OISE, as well as in the Psychology Dept at the University of Latvia. Her main research work is in the area of Prevention of Depression published in Creating Alternatives to Depression in the Schools.Her current interest is in promoting wellness. During the past decade she has conducted longitudinal studies on risk and resiliency factors in first-year student adaptation at the University of Latvia focusing on factors related to Positive Psychology.

The Holistic Educator’s Group meets Saturday mornings from 10 am to 12 noon approximately every two months from September through April. The meetings are open to all who may be interested in holistic teaching and learning and are not exclusively for those who are associated with studies at OISE/UT. We have a number of captivating speakers each year who join us to lead workshop sessions which tend to be interactive, and participatory. Meetings are also an opportunity to network with those who have common interests.

Our meetings are at OISE/UT, 252 Bloor Street West between St. George and Bedford on the north side of the street. There is a notice board in the lobby where the Room Number (5-280) will be posted. The main floor coffee concession is sometimes open on Saturdays or there's a Tim Horton's just east of the building on Bloor. Parking on Saturday under the OISE building is fairly reasonable. Of course TTC is always a good option (St. George Station on the Bloor line). If you are planning to attend, please RSVP.
