Art Therapy & Therapeutic Scrapbooking: Putting Them Together

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

ROOM 701

In this half-day workshop, we will explore the history of scrapbooking in general and the history of therapeutic scrapbooking in particular. By increasing our knowledge of scrapbooking terminology and methods, we will discover the richness of this medium, and its applicability in the clinical context. We will learn how this medium is especially useful with particular populations, such as those with special needs, with seniors, and especially with women. Then we will understand how therapeutic scrapbooking can easily fit into one’s therapy practice and reasons why one might include this method. Finally, we will have hands-on practice with new techniques and tools. This workshop will require the participants to bring four or more photos on a related topic; all other materials will be provided.
