FIRST SESSION: SAFETY AND IDENTITY
We begin by initiating our creative recovery. We may feel both giddy and defiant, hopeful and skeptical. The aim is to allow ourselves to establish a sense of safety, which will enable us to explore our creativity with less fear. Next, we address self-definition as a major component of creative recovery. We may find ourselves drawing new boundaries and staking out new territories as our personal needs, desires, and interests announce themselves. Our aim here, is to move into a personal identity, a self-defined self.
