Incorporating Artmaking into Counseling and Psychotherapy: When, How & Why?

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

This highly experiential daylong Master Class is designed to provide those professionals who wish to integrate artmaking into any expressive therapy, counseling, or psychotherapy practice with a formal decision-making system regarding what initiatives (task structures) to assign, which materials to use, and when to use them to greatest effect. We will focus on the Expressive Therapies Continuum (ETC), a 4-level model for effective arts therapies planning and treatment, co-published by this author in 1978, and now widely used by practitioners. Additionally, the relationship between Media Dimension Variables (MDV) and the ETC, and how their interaction influences various therapeutic functions, will be demonstrated through a number of hands-on artmaking activities for use with clients of all ages.

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