East/West Multimodal Arts Therapies Approaches for Non-verbal Populations

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

ROOM 711

Art therapy is often referred to as a non-verbal therapy, and because of this, it has the potential to cross the boundaries of language, abilities, and culture. The presenters of this workshop have provided intensive trauma relief work in both the US and Japan through their East/West art therapy approach. This paper session will introduce their unique methodology that has been used in multicultural environments where people come from different linguistic backgrounds and have limited verbal communication. Participants will learn the value of integrating Eastern and Western approaches to enhance the healing process in the globalized context.

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