CREATE: The Art Therapy Relational Neurobiology Model

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

In this daylong Master Class, we will discuss CREATE, an interpersonal neurobiology approach to expressive art therapy. Informed by clinical neuroscience, CREATE enables art therapists to develop effective interventions and provide art therapy within a unifying theoretical foundation. Through theoretical introduction, references to clinical neuroscience research, case material, and experiential activity, this presentation will demonstrate how sensory expressive practices can provide safe opportunities for emotional expression, repairing autobiographical memories and increasing resiliency and empathy. For each of the six CREATE principles, participants will learn the basics of the social brain structure and functions, and develop clinically relevant directives for professional application. Information from the presenter's upcoming book will be presented and discussed.
