About this Event

Please note: Pre-registration for this event has closed due to overwhelming interest. However, if there are any seats remaining at 5:50pm, doors will open to all. At that time, attendees can enter regardless of RSVP status.

How can we use creativity and creative expression to cope with mental health challenges? Hear from a working writer, learn more about the clinical use of creative expression, and then practice some exercises to awaken your own creativity.

Join us as we welcome Jen Epstein, author of Don’t Get Too Excited, and Drena Fagan, Co-Founder and Director of Programs at NY Creative Arts Therapists.

Writer and activist Jen Epstein was raised by two mental health professionals and struggled as a child with anxiety and irrational fears. These fears evolved over time into Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Her presence is particularly timely during International OCD Awareness Week!

NY Creative Arts Therapists integrates creative arts with proven therapeutic practice, and have all of the creative arts therapies under one metaphoric roof: Art Therapy, Drama Therapy, Dance-Movement Therapy, and Music Therapy. They are the only practice in New York with a fully multi-modal staff.
