The Nebraska Expressive Arts Therapy Foundation
As a social worker and mental health practitioner, I have been in the unique position of helping those experiencing complex trauma, family disruption, and grief for over two decades. Early on in my profession, I worked directly with young people impacted by the devastating effects of sexual abuse.
Volunteering is not only a great opportunity for giving back to the community but can also be beneficial to the volunteers themselves. Volunteer work can look many ways and there are tons of great opportunities to volunteer wherever you live! It’s something that can be tailored to your lifestyle and provides a wonderful opportunity to explore new interests, listen to stories you may have never heard, and it offers a method of giving back to others.

Journaling to Improve Health
Do you have a goal to start journaling in 2024?
A common answer I hear when asking what people do for self-care is journaling. As we’re approaching the new year, you may have a goal to make journaling part of your daily routine in 2024.

Thoughts of your childhood diary come rushing in with sticker filled pages and goofy thoughts about love and friendship. Or maybe you have tried journaling in your adult life and have struggled to stay committed to making it a part of your life.

The idea of it is great, until the empty seat next to you brings on the heartache to realize that a loved one won’t be joining you this year for the holidays. As great as the holiday season seems, it can also be some of the most difficult days for those coping with a new normal without a loved one by their side.
Launching Into a New Year & a New Website
With the end of December comes the time for resolutions, reflection, and change. The beginning of a new year always feels refreshing and exciting to me. The snowfall that we received this past week in the Omaha area has only added to that crisp, new feeling. The New Year is a great time to set intentions and goals, and that is exactly what we have done at The Kim Foundation. While our mission remains the same, The Kim Foundation has planned some big things for 2024!
