Presented by Ursula Jorgensen, ATR-BC, LMFT and Kassidy Butterworth, ATR-P, AMFT Art therapy has a long and distinguished history with documented benefits for many populations. Some populations that have experienced this benefit are those suffering from trauma or loss, PTSD, anxiety, depression, selective mutism, ASD, and ADHD. As human beings we strive to express ourselves not only by words but to 'make our mark'. Preschoolers will color and scribble for hours using colors and lines. What is less clear is who is an Art Therapist and how others can use Art in therapy. This workshop will help define Art therapists from therapists offering art making. The importance of which art materials will work best for a client needing structure or to practice more flexibility and less controlled medium. Our presenters from Bay Area Art Therapy will share 5 of their favorite art-based interventions, share templates that can be used by participants, and considerations or adaptations based on age as well as goals of the client. The goal of this program is for participants to be able to understand the difference between Art Therapy by Art Therapists and Art in Therapy by clinical therapists without art therapy certification. All participants will learn to provide clinically appropriate art-based interventions for clients of all ages from young children to teens and those adults who are young at heart. Learning Objectives At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to: 1. Define Art therapy. 2. Identify structured art mediums from non-structured art mediums on the art continuum. 3. Clarify the difference between Art Therapy and Art in therapy. 4. Name 5 art-based interventions. 5. List considerations and adaptations based on age or goal focus.
