Course Description:

Do you have clients who are stuck, repeating the same patterns over and over and you feel like you’re powerless to help them? You know the ones that repeatedly refuse to listen and don’t stop to think before they act. Or those who refuse to take responsibility for their behaviors and constantly pass blame onto others? Do they leave you feeling stagnant and burnt out in your practice? Do you work with challenging children and families who seem absolutely resistant to every intervention you offer?

Let me help you, like I have helped other therapists. Attend this seminar and learn new innovative interventions to help even your most resistant clients become unstuck. Your day will consist of creative, interactive, hands-on training that will re-energize your work. You will leave with 77 fresh new art strategies and approaches that you can use immediately to engage even your most difficult and challenging clients.

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

  1. Explore art therapy directives to immediately implement into therapy practice to help children regulate their emotions and behaviors.
  2. Consider the ethical implications and clinical limitations of using art therapy in clinical practice.
  3. Determine the stages of a child’s normative development, and identify the indicators suggesting a need for additional clinical support.
  4. Summarize the benefits of utilizing an art therapy approach in assessment, diagnosis and clinical treatment of mental health disorders.
  5. Develop a plan for introducing art into clinical practice for treatment-resistant and challenging children and families.
  6. Determine the neurobiological implications of using art therapy among clients with various diagnoses.
