An Art Therapy Perspective Rescheduled for March 13, 2010

The goals for the symposium, as suggested by our collective membership are to:

provide both a didactic and experiential approach to learning, to address clinical theories for working with traumatized populations. These may include, but are not limited to, sensory interventions, mindfulness, public service education, inpatient and outpatient treatment, as well as the need for self-care for vicarious traumatization.

The objectives for the one-day symposium are as follows;

-Review theory and background on current traumatic populations.

-Identify and apply two art therapy techniques to use with traumatized populations.

-Understand and distinguish between 2-3 art therapy concepts associated with appropriate clinical application, with traumatic clients including sensory intervention, and mindfulness.

-Understand the role of mindfulness techniques in the treatment of trauma

Please note that registration at the MATA/PATA/VATA member rate is contingent upon confirmation of membership in one of the three organizations. If you are not a member, $15 must be paid before you will be admitted to the conference.
