Experiential Practice, Expressive Arts Therapy Part 2 (2 hours) May 28th, 4:30-6:30
Purpose: We cannot be practitioners of the arts if we don’t know what it ’s like to experience them ourselves. Part 2 will be about working in the imaginal realm, focused on experiential work in multiple modalities. This is also intended as a space for self-care and self-exploration, should you wish to accept that invitation. All of the interventions I will lead you through are ones you can use with your clients at the individual, family, or group level. Interventions will be effective for clients of all ages and will be applicable to telehealth work.
- Through individual and group experiences, participants will deepen awareness of the healing potential of the arts by fully immersing in hands-on arts exploration. Each modality (visual arts, music, drama, dance/movement, written & spoken word) will include a discussion component.
- Participants will walk away with an intervention toolkit, having learned arts-based therapeutic interventions in each of the core modalities of Expressive Arts Therapy.
