This year, DesignPhiladelphia participants will learn about the dynamic mental health profession of Art Therapy in an online forum. This art therapy introduction is hands-on and participants will create while learning about the use of art in psychotherapy as a tool for physical and emotional release, personal development and growth, insight, trauma processing, skill-building, and enhancing communication. Participants do not need to have any prior art experience or proficiency to appreciate this workshop. Art therapy is based on the principles that art-making is inherently healing and life-enhancing, and that all people have the capacity for growth, change, and creative expression. This workshop is sponsored in part by the Jefferson Trauma Education Network (J-TEN).

Thomas Jefferson University is proud to offer a master's and post-master's specialization in Art Therapy through its Community and Trauma Counseling program, located on the East Falls campus. You can learn more about these programs via Jefferson's website (http://eastfalls.jefferson.edu/ArtTherapy), or by attending this workshop.
