ROOM 808

As expressive therapists, we work with many different populations. Through the course of her professional career of over 20 years, the presenter of this workshop believed she had seen it all, until she was recently asked to go into the homes of chronically and/or terminally ill patients, and make art with them. Many of these children could not walk, talk, move, see, or hear. In this workshop, the presenter will share her life-changing story of working with these individuals, and the process of being challenged and learning to become a better art therapist, as well as a better human being. Multiple case studies of children with diagnoses that span from cancer to infant ALS (Lou Gehrig’s) will be presented. Through experiential exercises, participants will explore novel ways of using various art materials. All are welcome!

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