Tapping, Scribbling & Wiggling: A Mind/Body Approach to Art Therapy for Trauma

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

ROOM 702


In this 3-hour workshop, participants will be introduced to a variety of simple art and movement techniques that produce bilateral stimulation, which is posited to “change the brain” by creating new neural connections between the rational (cognitive) and emotional (limbic) areas. The presenters will provide a brief overview of the neurobiology of trauma, describe the neurodevelopment of artmaking, and illustrate, through case presentation, the application of bilateral art therapy. In the experiential component, participants will practice self-tapping, gentle movement, and several new bilateral “scribbling” techniques, integrating basic aspects of the Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) protocol. Although EMDR will not be taught in this workshop, participants will gain familiarity with some of its basic principles, and will be guided towards future training in this evidence-based trauma treatment. The presenters of this workshop, board certified art therapists who specialize in trauma treatment, are also trained in yoga, sensorimotor psychotherapy, and EMDR.

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