Expressive Therapies Summit in NYC

Earlier this month, a colleague and I presented at the Expressive Therapies Summit in NYC. Our presentation was on the use of art therapy to address dynamic risk factors in sex sex offenders. It was a great experience and we were also able to attend some other interesting presentations. I attended a workshop about the Lahad six part story which I shared with my fellow art therapists when I returned from the conference. I also attended a workshop on visual reflection and narrative therapy. My colleague attended a felting workshop and made some very cool projects. It was great to learn about new methods and techniques, and meet other expressive therapists. It was a very refreshing and inspiring experience.
