Working in the entertainment industry involves unique challenges. Those who are actors and creators have unique strengths and vulnerabilities that help them in their work but can also lead to anxiety and depression. Understanding how to manage or “navigate” these vulnerabilities helps artists to develop resilience and stay healthy and well. This session will help you understand how you are uniquely wired and how you can best manage the challenges of the industry.
