Creative Counseling Techniques: Using Creative Arts to Promote Client Self-Efficacy and Resilience

The COVID-19 pandemic had many mental health providers working virtually through telehealth services. Today, many professionals continue to use a hybrid approach for engaging clients. With the prevelance of our mental health crisis, therapists’ burnout can add to the ongoing pressure felt by many professionals providing both face to face and virtual therapeutic services online. Integrating creative and expressive art techniques can bolster therapeutic rapport and connection to deepen the healing experience of traditional "talk therapy". Join us in a unique 1-hour experiential and interactive workshop where you will learn to use creative interventions in both virtual and face to face therapy sessions. Attendees will be actively engaged and will leave the workshop with creative techniques that can be applied and modified across diagnoses, populations, ages, and situations. Description: Play therapists and expressive art therapists often use a variety of art and creative activities in their work with children, teens, and adults. This workshop will introduce creative and expressive art activities to be used in therapy.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand and appreciate the power of creative expression in virtual therapy and face to face therapy
  • Utilization of creative and expressive activities for all client populations across the lifespan
  • Identify at least one activity for establishing a therapeutic rapport with clients virtually and face to face
  • Identify basic supplies needed to incorporate creative techniques in virtual therapy
  • Identify at least one activity for assessment with clients virtually and face to face using creative activities.
