Presentation Description

Art therapy has a long and distinguished history with documented benefits for many populations. Some populations that have experience this benefit are those suffering from trauma, loss, PTSD, anxiety, depression, selective mutism, and neurodiversity such as ASD or ADD/ADHD. As human beings we strive to express ourselves not only by words but to ‘make our mark’. Preschoolers will color and scribble for hours using colors and lines. What is less clear is how to do use art in session ethically and with clear verbiage when talking to clients or their family.

This workshop will help define Art therapists from therapists offering art making. The importance of art materials when working with different client populations. The presenter will share their top 3-5 interventions depending on time leaving space for some questions and answers from participants.
