Incorporating Expressive Arts in Counseling - November 12, 2019 at 1pm
Drs. Regina Gavin Williams and Kelly King
Creative activities have the potential to promote meaningful introspection and support social connections when incorporated into counseling (Boldt & Paul, 2011; Lenz, Holman, & Dominguez, 2010; Rosen & Atkins, 2014). In this webinar, we will define expressive arts, list considerations for their application, and explore their benefit for clients. We will also outline several creative interventions for use in future counseling sessions across school, career, and clinical mental health settings.
