“Artfulness: Restoring Stillness” Video
Patricia Kinser & Jill Ware
Patricia Kinser is a nurse practitioner and Assistant Professor in the VCU School of Nursing, who does research on mindful interventions for various populations. In this video, she frames our thinking on how we should approach our own stress and shares potential coping mechanisms. She encourages us to try a variety of approaches but always with self-compassion. And Jill Ware, from the VCUarts Depot, shares her personal story of how a new art practice, from dance to drawing, gave her a mindfulness practice free of judgment and how it affected her positively during an extremely stressful time in her life.
