Art Therapy: Enhancing Professional & Personal Practice

Come immerse yourself in art for a day! This one-day workshop will examine art processes from a cultural, clinical and personal perspective. Participants will engage in an art activity to deepen their personal and professional practice and will be provided case examples of at-risk children who have engaged in an art therapy process. No previous art experience or talent is required for this workshop. The day will also draw upon drama therapy techniques, breath & bodywork and a guided meditation. Please wear comfortable clothing that you can make art and move in.
