GATA 2019 Winter Workshop
Narrative Art Therapy:
Post Modern Trauma Interventions and
Self Care for Art Therapists and Counselors
Presented by Carrie Elder, LPC, ATR-BC, CPCS
This 5 CE workshop will provide attendees with an overview of symptoms of PTSD according to the DSM V. Postmodern theory and approaches, mainly Narrative Therapy, will be clearly defined in comparison to modern approaches.
The basic philosophies of art therapy will be reviewed with
an emphasis on how Art Therapists, and non-Art Therapists such as Professional Counselors, can use art-based interventions, from a postmodern and Narrative approach, as a treatment option.
Vicarious trauma / compassion fatigue, will be explored in the context of working with trauma experiences.
Experiential activities will be used to demonstrate art-based methods to help mental health providers increase self-care skills as it relates to vicarious trauma.
Lunch is included and will be provided on site.
We hope to see you there!
