As many teens experience the loss and anxiety that accompanies the ongoing uncertainty of living through a pandemic, Christina Kemp will be facilitating adolescent discussion groups to bring teens together in a time when many are struggling. Gathering weekly, Christina will help teens to clarity feelings of unrest and offer a holding place to process concerns with the support of others. Adolescents will grow skills related to self-reflection and self-care as they cope with this extraordinary time of change. Emotional processing through reflective journaling prompts, group discussion, guided relaxation & somatic movement practices – within the consistent support of a facilitated group – will offer teens tools that will be useful for many years to come.
Christina is a dance teacher at BDC, and has a Master’s in Counseling Psychology. She is a Part-Time Instructor of Psychology at Seattle University, and has a small healing, guidance & counseling practice on Bainbridge Island.
