44. Creative Resiliency in Your Practice | Kate Shannon

The Creative Psychotherapist

Kate Shannon, LPC, LCAT, MT-BC is the host of the Creative Therapy Umbrella podcast. She offers therapist support services, private practice services and continuing education. She has spent her career supporting children with life-limiting medical diagnoses, mental health needs, and developmental differences through music therapy, play and creative expression. Kate is passionate about incorporating play therapy skills into the music therapy space and helps other therapists learn how to support healthy social and emotional development through these skills. Kate also loves working with adults utilizing inner child work, attachment-based therapy, mindfulness and creativity. Besides creating music, she loves to knit, needle felt, read, play video games and spend time with her family. In this episode, Kate talks about the role of creative resiliency and entrepreneurship. She shares at least 5 tips to build your own creative resiliency practice. My favorite is her practice of scheduling in 30 minutes of "boredom" time into her calendar which help her to slow down and allow the inspiration to flow. She also shares how she is working to offer CE's for music therapists through her podcast, The Creative Therapy Umbrella and the Music Therapy Podcast Collective.

Poetry by Kate Shannon

The Ink Pods. Literary Podcast for The Blue Nib.

Kate Shannon is an organic farmer and editor in upstate New York, where she lives with her partner and too many animals. Kate has been published in Anti Heroin Chic, High Shelf Press , and the forthcoming issue of The Mithilia Review.TRANSCRIPT:Still PercolatingI am tiny magicksAnd miniature pyrotechnicsYou have to really be looking to see these powersBut I could burn this whole forest down,I wouldn’t, but I could,And isn’t it sweet To know your righteous powerAnd know that it is righteous By the stilling of your hands When they could break everything In the room;Maybe even when they shouldBreak everything In the room. Restraint is honed,And I have been put to the grindstoneQuenched steaming in cold oil,Filed to severe pointsAnd dragged across gritTo make me as sharp as I am right now;Sometimes I still throw sparks. To be honest, I am still learning to live Without being ignited,To not drag myself bloodyAcross those rough stonesAnd to speak without a hand choking At the throat of my blade,To be heavenly despite my purpose; To be spells of warmth,To be a built home:Her crackling hearth, Rain dribbling down the roof,Somewhere there is lightning and thunder And sharper-tongued flames— not here.Support the show (https://thebluenib.com/donation/)
