Got my Sponge Painting with stencils sample pieces done for when I facilitate my very first session all by myself for a crafts program this Thursday working with the elderly. So happy how these came out. Super excited! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’•

A close up of the mini driftwood make I did earlier this week. I am obsessed with these vertical hitch knots at the moment. The repetition is so therapeutic to do and I think they allow for narrative and subtle texture changes not achievable with other knots. ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ’™

Art interventions aren't always about the final product (though they are always fabulous!) My residents aided in sorting beads into red, white, and blue which aided in an array of skill sets from dexterity, to cognitive stimulation. #artprogram #therapeuticrecreation #activities #geriatrics #whattherec

Applying my knowledge of leisure doesnโ€™t end when my work day does.  When I come home from work I make an effort to engage in some core family leisure with my girls, Peyton & Jordyn! 
Today that includes bouncing on a pogo stick and enjoying some watermelon on the front porch. Family leisure is a great (& fun) way to promote health among all family members and the family unit. 
Sometimes family leisure is not a focus when we provide services to our clients despite the literature continually supporting the relationship between family leisure participation and health.  If you work in mental health please feel free to look through and utilize this toolkit I developed with the support of Dr. Gretchen Snethen & Dr. Gena Bell Vargas while completing my Masterโ€™s degree in recreation therapy. ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

At the end of every work day I try to give myself about 15 minutes to unwind. Working as a recreation therapist in mental health is rewarding but also has challenges. In effort to avoid burnout I enjoy doing art. Watercolor ๐ŸŽจ  and collaging ๐Ÿ“šโœ‚๏ธ are my two favorite art tasks.

Let's talk BINGO! 
As a recreation therapist, I feel some people view Bingo as a diversional activity that serves little to no purpose. It has become an everyday part of my job to show folks that recreation therapist will not do things the traditional way! Yes, any person can do Bingo, but not every person will modify the activity the way a recreation therapist will to produce outcomes. 
Advocating for recreation therapy and being able to show other professionals or treatment team members the benefit of an activity is definitely a BIG part of the job! 
Here is an example of two of the ways I do Bingo! Feel free to share below the ways you have modified Bingo!

You can make your own free bingo cards @ myfreebingocards.com (I recommend laminating them so they last longer!) Recreation Therapy BINGO!
I developed this board to promote discussion on how recreational activities can support mental health. When a person calls "BINGO", instead of coming to a prize we come to a discussion. Some discussion questions we go through as a group include:
1) pick an activity on the BINGO board, and tell us about the last time you did it
2) tell me about an activity that is helpful to you
3) what is one activity you would like to start doing again and why is that important to your mental health 
Philly Recreation BINGO!
I developed this board so group members can learn about resources in the area. The discussion questions for this version of BINGO support the connection between community recreation participation and health/wellness. Some of the discussion questions include:
1) name one thing from the BINGO board that you used to enjoy doing that you no longer do
2) share a time you did something listed on the BINGO board and talk about how that experience helped you feel good about yourself
3) name on activity on the BINGO board that you would like resource for before you leave the hospital

getting creative with positive affirmations... these are examples of quotes that were printed, cut, & laminated prior to the session. Group members were encouraged to choose a positive affirmation that they feel relates to them & their recovery during this time! 
This activity nicely pairs with journaling! -Provide group members with small journals and prompt them to reflect on their affirmation through writing or drawing in the journal! Donโ€™t have journals? Use paper or make journals !! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“ Allow them to share if they want too! 
If not, encourage them to take the affirmation with them and read it aloud through out the day as needed!

Hi! I am Debbie (Pakstis) Kubis and welcome to my #TakeoverTueasday! I am a master's level Recreation Therapist at Temple Hospital Episcopal Campus! At Temple Episcopal I serve people with mental illnesses in the Kensington and surrounding areas at an inpatient level. I received my education from Temple University. Typically, my day to day work includes admission assessments, progress notes, discharge notes, and group facilitation. Yuck, that sounds boring even coming from a recreation therapist! Stay tuned and I will update you on the different types of groups I facilitate and how I stay fun and therapeutic while working in this population! 
Despite being a Temple Owl as a student and professional, I am partial to elephants. That paired with my newly discovered photo-shopping talent prompted my 'welcome pic'. #TakeOverTuesday #recreationaltherapy #NoElephantsWereHarmedMakingThisPhoyo

Kudos to Nan Goldin for making public, her history with #addiction. A good reminder that people struggle. And a message to keep on keeping on toward better mental health even though mental health awareness month is over. Find inspiration in others who beat the odds; learn hard lessons from those who didnโ€™t. (A particularly sad week for those following news of #katespade and #anthonybourdain.) Stay aware of your own issues and triggers. Do a one-day, one-week, one-month, one-year, five-year evaluation of yourself and revise as needed. Watch #the happy movie. Get #exercise and spend time especially #outdoors in #nature, with people who like, love and #support you and with #animals and #art. www.nytimes.com/guides/well/how-to-be-happy #mentalhealthawareness  #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #addictionrecovery #takecareofyourself #mentalhealthmatters #prevention #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #pettherapy #ripkatespade #ripanthonybourdain #nangoldin #beataddiction #environmentaltherapy #therapeuticrecreation #therapeuticriding #buildcommunity #photographer #knowyourself #selfawareness

deeper than i anticipated, however, everyday i talk with people about improving the quality of their lives through doing something they enjoy or trying new things that force them to step out of their comfort zone to grow. it can be as simple as carving 1 hour out of the 168 we have each week to try something new that makes us happy. iโ€™ve been attempting to fill that hour with things that help me to be more creative and step out of said comfort zone. i will definitely stick to my day job but for me, itโ€™s about self care and growing into something more than i was yesterday. the point is, taking care of yourself is so very important and can be done in many ways and how you fill your leisure time is one of them

Your turn to learn to let it out, expressing yourself using art! 
Next workshop 6/11 7pm.

You will use words, colors and texture to express whatโ€™s ready to get out. Then take the piece with you as a visual to reflect on in the future when those thoughts/feelings come come again or you can use it to continue the process for the next layers.

Register via link in bio and I will be ready to support you tomorrow night @hashtagloveyourva
