Art Therapy: Creative Art Interventions for Challenging Children Who Act Out, Melt Down or Shutdown 2018-05-14T14:28:21+00:00

Do you work with challenging children and teens who seem absolutely resistant to every intervention you offer? Clients who are stuck, repeating the same patterns over and over and you feel like you’re powerless to help them? You know the ones that repeatedly refuse to listen and don’t stop to think before they act. Or those who refuse to take responsibility for their behaviors and constantly pass blame onto others? Do they leave you feeling stagnant and burnt out in your practice?

1- Explore art therapy directives to immediately implement into clinical practice with fidelity to help children regulate their emotions and behavior.
2- Consider the ethical implications and clinical limitations of using selected art therapy approaches within your scope of practice.
3- Determine the stages of a child’s normative development and identify the indicators suggesting a need for additional clinical support.
3-Summarize the benefits of utilizing therapeutic artmaking approaches in assessment, diagnosis, and clinical treatment of mental health disorders.
4- Develop a plan for introducing art into clinical practice for treatment resistant and challenging children and families.
5- Determine the neurobiological implications of using therapeutic art interventions among clients with various diagnoses.

*No art experience is necessary, just an openness to try something creative.
