End-of-life care workers and volunteers are particularly prone to burnout given the intense emotional and existential nature of their work. Supervision is one important way to provide adequate support that focuses on both professional and personal competencies. The inclusion of art
therapy principles and practices within supervision further creates a dynamic platform for sustained self-reflection. A 6-week art therapy–based supervision group provided opportunities for developing emotional awareness, recognizing professional strengths, securing collegial relationships,
and reflecting on death-related memories. The structure, rationale, and feedback are discussed.
