Nurturing the ‘Art’ in the Art of Therapy
by Victor Yalom
This is your chance to sit in on a conversation with art therapy pioneer, Judy Rubin, PhD, and Psychotherapy.net founder, Victor Yalom as they discuss the power of artistic expression in therapy. Dr. Rubin shares stories of her life’s work as an art therapist, including techniques and various media she used to help clients get in touch with themselves. 
Psychologist, artist, and art therapy pioneer Judy Rubin, PhD relays how clients bring experiences into therapy that cannot be readily put into words, including impressions, images, dreams, memories, and traumas stored through the senses. Watch video clips of her engaging in art therapy with clients and learn the types of questions, tactics, and methods she employed. Through this rich discussion, she and Psychotherapy.net founder, Victor Yalom, will show you the power and potential of bringing art into therapy with clients of all ages.

Rubin and Yalom provide viewers insightful perspectives that are sure to pique your interest. You’ll discover simple ways of bringing art into therapy and give your clients new ways of expressing themselves. Help your client access parts of themselves they might otherwise be unable to and give them the opportunity to explore gifts, talents, and strengths that they (and you) are unaware of.   

Rubin began her career as the Art Lady on Mr. Rogers Neighborhood, which then evolved into decades of teaching, practice, supervision, and building a vast library of videos through her non-profit organization, Expressive Media Inc. This year, she entrusted these videos to Psychotherapy.net. By engaging with this one-of-a-kind webinar, Rubin will entice you, as Mr. Rogers did her to “Try it, you’ll like it.”
