Self Journeys through Wisdom Journals : Mixed Media Art Journaling in Art Therapy

Friday, September 28, 2018 10:00-11:30am

Buckeye Art Therapy 37th annual Symposium

I will share a presentation highlighting a variety of ways to build a wisdom journal to use in a variety of ways in clinical work and personal growth. I will share multiple approaches using mixed media art journaling as a trauma sensitive way to assist survivors in a process of healing. Case examples will be shown for both group work and individual therapy process. Participants will create one version of a wisdom journal to explore the concept of wisdom gained to benefit and affirm clinical practice/personal growth and to apply new mixed media art journaling techniques. 





Join me on Friday, September 19, 2014  3:30-5:00 at Embassy Suites, Dublin, Ohio. I am honored to be offering a workshop at the Buckeye Art Therapy Association’s 33rd Regional Symposium.
