Course Description:

Do you have clients who are stuck, repeating the same patterns over and over and you feel powerless to help them? Are they often resistant to the interventions you offer?

Join internationally known art therapist, Dr. Ellen Horovitz, in this hands-on workshop where she will show you how to incorporate expressive art therapies into your practice in a disarming, imaginative and emotionally-safe manner.

Reach your most resistant patients with evidence-based practices that cut through an array of disorders, including mood, personality, developmental-learning, eating and body disorders. You’ll learn to identify both normal and abnormal artwork from cognitive, physical, emotional and developmental platforms. Add value to your clinical practice by learning creative art therapy modalities that succeed with individuals, couples and families.

Patient video footage of difficult case studies and active hands-on participation will demonstrate how to incorporate these assessments and modalities into your practice. No prior experience necessary!

No art experience is necessary, just an openness to try something creative.
Objectives:

  1. Summarize the benefits of utilizing an art therapy approach in assessment, diagnosis and clinical treatment of mental health disorders.
  2. Consider the ethical implications and clinical limitations of using art therapy modalities in treatment.
  3. Utilize art therapy methods to identify both normal and abnormal psychological developments in clients.
  4. Articulate the methods by which art therapy assessment techniques (such as ATDA, BATA, CATA) can be utilized to improve clinical outcomes.
  5. Incorporate art therapy interventions for identifying specific clinical issues including aggression, self-esteem, PTSD and eating disorders.
  6. Recognize how to identify cognitive, physical and emotional irregularities in art that may indicate symptoms of anxiety and mood disorders and identify potential issues of physical and sexual abuse.
