Trauma, Recovery, & Growth: Art Therapy & Other Therapeutic Approaches

January 25, 2011
Saturday, March 12, 2011
Hosted by The Seton Hill University Graduate Art Therapy Program and Student Art Therapy Association
Greensburg, Pennsylvania

This one-day conference at Seton Hill University features a 3 hour keynote workshop presented by Linda Gantt on Using the Graphic Narrative for Trauma Processing, in addition to other trauma focused offerings addressing attachment and mind/body approaches through art, music, dance, and movement therapy.

I am looking forward to being part of this program through presenting an afternoon workshop about Art Therapy Group Strategies and Interventions with Youth Exposed to Domestic Violence. This presentation will focus on strategies and important themes to consider when facilitating group work with youth exposed to domestic violence. Content presented will help participants gain a trauma informed understanding related to safety, emotional expression, coping, validation, and normalizing through art expression in a group setting for this population.

6.5 continuing education credits are available for this full day conference. If you are interested in learning more and how to register, download the brochure and registration information here.


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!
