What makes our professional trainings different? We combine hands-on creative activities with best-practice therapy techniques to enhance learning and treatment. In other words: we make it fun, informative, and maybe even self-revelatory.

  • We provide practical information that you can immediately use in your clinical practice.
  • Interactive, creative learning approach.
  • Lots of nuts and bolts information without any dry boring lectures.
  • Expert presenters from different practice models.
  • CE credits. All the hours count. No filler.

When teaching techniques or methods of incorporating creative arts therapies into clinical practice we adhere to the American Art Therapy Association (AATA) Guidelines, Ethical Principles, Section 8.6 which states:  "When providing training and/or supervision to non-art therapists, art therapists take precautions to ensure that trainees understand the nature, objectives, expectations, limitations, and resulting qualifications of the supervision and/or training as distinct from formal studies in art therapy."

This was a really wonderful experience. It provided a great foundation and made me enthusiastic to learn more. It also felt really good to be making art myself!
