Event description

Description

Join PAATA, formally DVATA for the 2018 annual conference titled "Traditions & Transitions: The Changing Field of Art Therapy", featuring Jordan Potash PhD, ATR-BC, REAT LCPAT (MD) , LCAT (NY) as keynote speaker. Expanding art therapy across healthcare and social sectors necessitates adapting the traditional foci of the profession for contemporary practice. Rediscovering art therapy history, particularly overlooked early art therapists of color, reveals diverse theoretical and practical applications. These models can be adjusted through the behavioral health framework to offer art therapy across the healthcare continuum. Further increasing client access to art therapy and reducing health inequities requires a social justice perspective.


As a result of this presentation, participants will be able to:

· Describe the contributions of at least 3 pioneering art therapists of color

· Synthesize art therapy practices across the behavioral health continuum of care

· Identify art therapists’ role in promoting social justice and civic dialogue


Registatration will begin at 8 am with light breakfast and coffe. This year, lunch WILL be provided.


Hope to see you there!
