Incorporating Artmaking in Treatment: Essentials for Success

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

ROOM 705

In order to introduce artmaking into counseling or psychotherapy safely and with maximum therapeutic impact, clinicians need to have a clear understanding of why, when, and how to evoke (and to respond to) a client’s€™ creative efforts. This daylong Master Class with one of the pioneers in the field of art therapy offers a primer for clinicians who want to incorporate art successfully into their work with people of all ages and abilities. She will highlight the key considerations involved in: deciding what to do; inviting people to create; observing the creative process; interviewing during and after the activity; and re-viewing and assessing progress over time. Topics of special interest will include: how to engage clients in a way that promotes comfort and involvement in the process, how to deal with resistance, and how to make the most of empathic attunement. These principles and practices are universal, and therefore applicable to work with individuals, families, and groups in a wide variety of settings. Professionals at all levels of training and experience are welcome.

Eligible for 6.0 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS
