Creative Healing in Mental Health

by Judith Rubin, PhD & Eleanor Irwin, PhD
Here is a rare opportunity to witness world-famous art and drama therapists working with clients from all walks of life on their journeys to healing, including an adolescent boy with Asperger’s, families affected by cancer, an Alzheimer’s patient, and combat veterans. 


Creative Healing in Mental Health
Over the past fifty years, art therapy has become a recognized strategy for working successfully with diverse populations. Especially with clients who have difficulty expressing themselves verbally, art and drama therapy techniques offer exciting ways for therapists to make contact, connect, and begin a meaningful therapeutic dialogue.
 
See how these simple yet profound techniques support clients in uncovering unexpected parts of themselves as they process traumas, explore their fears, and tap into strengths they didn’t know they had. From puppets to pastels, sand play to scribble drawings, you will see a myriad of creative methods masterfully demonstrated and learn how to begin implementing these transformative practices immediately.

D.W. Winnicott said, “It is only in being creative that the individual discovers the self.” Most therapists can benefit from adding a little more creativity into their sessions. The good news is you don’t have to be a certified art or drama therapist to use some of these simple yet powerful techniques with your clients. This video offers an informative introduction to the “what, why, when, where, with whom, and how” of art and drama therapy, and will leave you with several options for using creative modalities to more effectively help your clients on their paths to self-discovery.

By watching this video, you will:
• Discover art and drama therapy techniques to help clients live fuller, more creative lives.
• Learn the essential conditions for reducing anxiety, stimulating the imagination, and helping patients feel less self-conscious during art therapy sessions.
• Identify how to achieve assessment and treatment goals using art and drama.
