Trauma Informed Art Therapy Course-Registration Now Open!

January 14, 2011

Join Cathy Malchiodi and I for an all day course on Trauma Informed Art Therapy!  We will be offering this course April 12, 2011 at the San Francisco Airport Hyatt Regency Hotel, which is also one day before the start of The 22nd Annual Society for the Arts in Healthcare Conference (SAH), being held at the same venue.

Trauma informed art therapy integrates neuroscience and neurodevelopment, somatic approaches, mindfulness practices, and resilience enhancement, using art making as the core approach. It is based on best evidence-based practices identified by SAMSHA and The National Institute for Trauma and Loss.  You can also read here to learn more about trauma informed art therapy.

This course is open to mental health and healthcare professionals, trauma specialists, and students. No previous experience with art therapy is required. This course also fulfills part of the Trauma Informed Art Therapy Certificate Program; all participants will receive a certificate of completion from the National Institute for Trauma and Loss.  Six (6) continuing education credits have also been applied for with the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC), APA, APT, and California of Behavioral Science (for MFTs).

To learn more about attending this course and register, visit our event page.  Space is limited, so remember to register early!  Hope if you are in the Bay area or planning to go to the SAH Conference, you’ll consider taking some extra time to attend this special offering!
