Workshop (80 min.): Cultural Humility in Art Therapy
This dynamic and engaging workshop will explore how power and privilege in relationships and institutions can hinder therapeutic work. Presenters will discuss how the framework of cultural humility provides a compelling way to address inequities and “what is broken” when applied in community work and art therapy practice. Participants will also be given the opportunity to engage in reflective practice through art making.

Workshops by Art as Therapy
At Art as Therapy we facilitate art therapy workshops designed specifically for you. Through the often less familiar modality of making something, participants are provided the opportunity for self-expression, which allows participants to tap into their creativity, to see things in a new way, to learn about themselves, and to gain personal insight. Being in a group can be a really powerful and meaningful experience. Participants benefit greatly from sharing the experience with others. There is power in collective wisdom and insight. And don't forget participants may experience enjoyment through the process, and the act of making something may positively shift their mood and energy level!
We run workshops at both our office locations or we can come to you, wherever that might be. To find out more about how Art as Therapy workshops can bring creativity and empowerment to your place, please contact us today.
