Conference Proposals

As part of Art Therapy supervision, I have encouraged my supervisees to present at conferences. Working with sex offenders affords many opportunities to share Art Therapy experiences. For the upcoming AATA conference, several supervisees are submitting proposals to present a paper or be on a panel. A panel is a good way to ease into presenting professionally since you have the support of co-panelists. Each Art Therapist can talk a little about a specific Art Therapy group that she has facilitated, and discuss what worked, any challenges, etc. I asked each to provide suggestions and feedback on the abstract, objectives, and title. I hope this experience will enable the Art Therapists to share their knowledge and experiences with other professionals, and promote Art Therapy.
