Writing, Relaxation & Restoration

HOPE-Website-Icon-01HOPE Series Session
Looking for an opportunity to stop, rest, and reflect? Join us for an interactive session where we will practice creative writing activities that can be used for all ages and contexts based on one simple principle—write right where you are. Through guided prompts, expressive activities, and calming meditation, we invite you to experience the magical restoration that is possible simply by sitting down with your thoughts and feelings and letting the page hold the weight for you for a little while.

Note: The session will be followed by a ten-minute Q&A.

additional information:

Asia Moore, MA, holds a master’s degree in social work from the University of Southern California, with a specialization in Children and Families. Ms. Moore has worked as a clinical social worker in both educational and outpatient settings for eight years. Her areas of specialization include trauma and crisis intervention, identity development in children and adolescents, multiculturalism and multi-systemic advocacy, and the use of expressive healing arts. Over the past decade, Ms. Moore has utilized her own multi-cultural background and identity as a storyteller to bring expressive arts to the most minoritized and marginalized populations ranging from K-12 settings, community college and university contexts, detention centers and prisons, and just about anywhere you can find someone being overlooked, unheard, and undervalued. Ms. Moore is currently completing her doctoral study in Positive Developmental Psychology and Evaluation at Claremont Graduate University to continue advocating for expressive arts as a transformational healing opportunity for the low-income, BIPOC communities of which she considers herself a proud product. Regardless of which professional hat you may find her wearing, Asia Moore is passionate about translating what works best for children and families with the most need and providing the incredible people who serve these communities with the best tools to empower, uplift, and transform the lives of the upcoming generations.
