February 14th, 2013
8:45 a.m.- 5 p.m.
Presenter: Catherine Moon, MA, ATR-BC
This symposium is focused on a social justice approach to art therapy that emphasizes reflexivity, power sharing, and cultural relevance.
An ongoing project to develop therapeutic arts programs in Kenya and Tanzania provides an example of the challenges and practical application of this model in an international context, while a community-based studio project in Chicago provides a model for how a social justice approach can be applied at the local level.
