Emotional/Affective: Allow clients to able to relax and just be in the moment. It is a good break from the daily stresses, especially if someone is still actively in treatment or has ongoing health issues.
Social: This is an important aspect of an HT session. Many times this might be the only time participants have been able to get out. that week. Creating a safe and supportive environment is essential. Sharing supplies. Helping each other.
I take time to implement and create all HT sessions. Planning. organizing and gathering information, sourcing supplies, addressing the needs of the participants.
