Introduction to Expressive Arts Therapy: Solutions for Trauma-Focused Care An evening webinar with Dr Jamie Marich Online, 5 December 2018 (Wednesday) 6:00pm - 9:00pm, London, UK time
Expressive Arts Therapy is based on the assumption that our clients can recover from trauma and / or addictions, through the process of creative expression. Defined by its emphasis on the multi-modal process of healing (exploring many combinations of creative expression, rather than relying on just one art form), the approach conceptually incorporates learnings from Jungian, person-centered and Gestalt psychotherapies – while practically providing therapeutic techniques to trauma therapists and addiction specialists. At this engaging and practically oriented online workshop with Dr Jamie Marich, our learning objectives are: Describe the origins of expressive arts therapy (e.g., indigenous traditions, historical threads in Jungian analysis, person-centered psychotherapy, and Gestalt psychotherapy) Define expressive arts therapy and explain its nature as a multi-modal, multi-art process Explain the concept of grounding and why teaching it to clients is relevant in trauma-focused care Implement an expressive arts process to teach grounding in a clinical setting (individual or group), using at least three creative art forms Webinar Schedule: 5.45pm: Online Registration 6.00pm: Session 1: Fundamentals of Expressive Arts Therapy in Healing Trauma Foundations of Expressive Arts Therapy History & Definitions Principles of Expressive Arts Therapy (Natalie Rogers) Expressive vs. creative Expressive arts and trauma-informed care The neuroscience of creativity and expression Enhancing possibilities in trauma-treatment Case examples and discussion 7:30pm: Break 7:45pm: Session 2: Applications in Teaching the Skill of Grounding Defining grounding Importance as a trauma-informed skill/intervention Perspectives Experiential expressive arts process Visualization Dance/movement Visual Art Writing Implementing expressive arts interventions Ideas for bolstering trauma-focused treatment plans Exploring options for further training and study 9:00pm: Close *If possible, participants are encouraged to have some scrap papers, and any drawing materials they may want to have available to them during the workshop.
