Focusing & Art Therapy: Accessing Body Wisdom through Creative Expression

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 702

Focusing was developed by Eugene Gendlin and colleagues at the University of Chicago in the 1960’s.  It is an approach designed to access the body’s wisdom, based on the idea that our thoughts emerge from a "felt experience."  Art therapy is a way of externalizing that experience.  Art therapist Laury Rappaport, PhD, created an interdisciplinary approach to Focusing, which she named Focusing-Oriented Art Therapy (FOAT®).  In this daylong Master Class, participants will be taught how to bring their attention into their bodies, to experience sensations, and then express them through art. Focusing with art therapy is useful for stress reduction, emotional regulation, and attaining general well-being. Using this practice to work with different populations will also be discussed.
