Articles of Affirmation: The Therapeutic Combination of Affirmations, Slow-Stitching, and Wearables with Annmarie LaConte, MA
Does the process of slow-stitching words of self-affirmation onto symbolically meaningful clothing, and the subsequent wearing of that clothing, serve as a therapeutic aid to emotional healing? A corresponding project under the working title, Articles of Affirmation, was designed by the presenter to further explore this concept using expressive arts therapy and positive psychology, creating both a therapeutic process and a therapeutic product. Participants will learn about some of the research behind affirmations, enclothed cognition, and slow-stitching, view clothing examples, and join the slow-stitch movement by learning and practicing the slow-stitching technique during this session!
