You asked for it, you got it! Results of the recent professional development wish list survey that went out to all newsletter recipients revealed a want for art therapy-related material to look at, listen to, and interact with. Want no more; my monthly blog post will feature slideshows, videos, etc., to reinforce your existing knowledge base and skill set, expand your horizons, and stir your soul in a way that goes beyond words. I’ve got two interactive goodies just waiting for you right now!
Without further adieu, I’d like to kick off this focus on interactive tools by drawing attention to a slideshow and a video that were previously featured in my blog. The slideshow highlights masks and montages that were created by military service veterans through the Department of Defense’s art therapy program. The video explores neuroscience’s interest in discovering the physiological benefits of art therapy as a treatment for cancer, PTSD, and other illnesses. You can find links for these in the following articles:
Look, listen, and learn. While you’re doing that, I’ll be on a treasure hunt for next month’s featured interactive opportunity. I look forward to sharing it with you!
With appreciation for the important work you do,
