Neuro-developmental Art Therapy: Treating Complex Trauma
This day-long workshop will feature the theory and application of Neuro-developmental Art Therapy (NDAT), a model of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) treatment developed by the presenter that utilizes the integrative capacity of the brain. A brief theoretical basis for the model will be offered, followed by a four stage model of art therapy based treatment for those with complex trauma histories. Specific art interventions using directive and non-directive art therapy techniques will be presented that are applicable to a variety of issues and disorders.
There will be an opportunity for experiential learning through experimentation with simple art media. All activities are designed to be safe, private, and confidential. No prior art training is necessary.
