Three-Day "Visual Journaling in Expressive Arts Therapy and Psychotherapy" [Advanced] at Franciscan Retreat Center ["Casa"] Scottsdale Arizona October 2, 3 & 4 2019.

Course Meeting Times: 9:00 am to 12 noon | 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm daily

Institute Faculty: Cathy Malchiodi, PhD, LPCC, LPAT, ATR-BC, REAT and Elizabeth Warson, PhD, LPC, ATR-BC

This is a brand new, advanced course in response to our course at Ghost Ranch in 2018...Visual journaling [also called art or drawing journaling] has been identified as both an important and accessible approach in expressive arts therapy, counseling and psychotherapy. It is not only an effective method for stress reduction, but also is considered a creative way to express personal narratives and life stories as well as make meaning through images, creative writing, imagination and storytelling. 

 

In this advanced three-day course, participants will experience a variety of visual journaling approaches that are grounded in emerging research and based on historical foundations of journaling for emotional reparation and wellness. Course content focuses on three basic areas--methods, materials and embodiment -- to demonstrate and illustrate how visual journaling can be adapted to support self-regulation, stress reduction, meaning-making and construction of narratives within person-centered expressive arts, narrative therapy and counseling frameworks. While this course is mostly "hands-on," participants will also learn how to design developmentally-appropriate, trauma-informed and culturally responsive visual journal interventions through lecture and group discussions. 

 

If you did not take our introductory course in 2018 at Ghost Ranch/Abiquiu New Mexico or our 2016 in Denver, you are welcome to join us for this course. Please use the Contact Form for any questions that you have.

 

This course provides 18 hours of continuing education [see Continuing Education information below for specific information]; a small additional fee is charged for continuing education certificates and is payable at the event. All participants who successfully complete the three-day course will receive a Certificate of Completion from the Trauma-Informed Practices and Expressive Arts Therapy Institute in "Visual Journaling in Expressive Arts Therapy and Counseling."
