Where can I work?
Art therapy can come to many different types of organizations. Some of those include:
1. Mental Health Organizations
2. Assisted Living
4. Wellness Centers
6. Group Homes
7. and more
If you do not see your organization on this list, this doesn't mean that it wouldn't be a right fit. Reach out to me with your ideas and we can see if this would be a good fit for your space.
What would a session look like?
This will depend on your organization and your needs for the clients. As well, it will depend on whether you are looking for clinical or non-clinical services. Generally, we set an intention for what you are needing and I will come into the space to set up and facilitate art therapy led groups and workshops.
Clinical Art Therapy: I would come into the space to run a group or individual sessions that focuses on a specific mental health issue that would involve psychotherapy.
Non-Clinical Art Therapy: These are groups and workshops that focus on a specific theme or provide art as therapy based sessions, meaning that I set a variety of materials out and the focus is more on the art-making as opposed to a mental health issue. This is not an art class, and I am not teaching art skills. I am providing and holding a safe space for exploration.
This will look different depending on your organization.
