Care for the Quake—Carers
Deborah Green, Bettina Evans
15 professional carers who were present during and personally experienced the Canterbury quakes in 2010/2011 and have offered care to others since. These include counsellors, teachers, therapists, social workers etc.
The city of Christchurch, Canterbury, New Zealand, population 360 000, and its surrounding province were devastated by four large and multiple smaller earthquakes beginning in September 2010.
The goals of the mission were:
- To involve carers in a process of co-creating arts therapy-based tools for self-care and relaxation and thereby enable them to rediscover their strengths and resiliencies; and
- To explore simple ways in which these creative processes may be used within the carers organisations and with their client groups.
