The Expressive Therapies Continuum: Conceptual Framework for Multimodal Expressive Arts Practice

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

ROOM 809

The Expressive Therapies Continuum (ETC) is a foundational theory that can increase communication among creative arts therapists of all disciplines by providing a framework for the planning, formation, and organization of therapeutic arts-based practice. This 3-hour workshop will demonstrate how the ETC can be used to guide the therapeutic decision making process with the modalities of sound, movement, drama, and artmaking. Using the artist’s studio “space” as a source of inspiration, participants will explore how different media and tools can be utilized as vehicles for creative expression and nonverbal communication within the ETC framework. Through this playful exploration, three of the four levels of the ETC (sensory/kinesthetic, perceptual/affective, and cognitive/symbolic) will be examined as they pertain to clinical interventions in daily practice.

Eligible for 3.0 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS
