Participatory Photography for Creating Change with At-Risk Populations

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 703

In this 90-minute workshop, participants will be introduced to the basic techniques and skills for creating participatory group photography sessions for at-risk populations. Participants will learn the process of making and selecting photographs that most accurately reflect the individual’s challenges and strengths. The exploration of the issues and themes that emerge from these images provide a safe container to effect positive change not only for the self, but for other members in the group as well. This method is appropriate for use with clients in a variety of age groups and settings; it is easily adaptable to the needs of art therapists, social workers, and counseling professionals.

Eligible for 1.5 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS
