General Information
The Healing through Creativity: Art Therapy Training Workshops introduce educators, mental health and medical professionals to the basic principles and practice of art therapy with emotionally, behaviorally, developmentally and medically challenged children, adolescents and adults.
The workshops blend theories and experiential exercises offering a thorough introduction in the therapeutic use of visual art as a powerful treatment modality.
Participants need no prior experience or talent with art! 

The training events review various topics within the field of art therapy. Covered are topics such as the history of art therapy, important evaluation techniques used by art therapists and case studies with client/patient artworks in PowerPoint presentations.

These are experiential, theoretical and process-oriented workshops!
