Free | Re-broadcast
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm (ET)
Presented by: Eleanor A. Poore, MS - Creative Arts Therapist & Primary Therapist, The Renfrew Center of Massachusetts
Art therapy is a powerful tool often used as an effective treatment modality for clients with eating disorders and co-occurring issues. Self-exploration, emotional tolerance building and relational dynamics are only a few of the many benefits participants can experience during the creative process. Additionally, patients are usually eager to be involved in the process and are receptive to the relational aspect of the work – thereby enhancing the therapeutic alliance so essential to healing.
This webinar will highlight the positive effects creative arts therapies can have on those who are struggling in recovery and feeling isolated. Attendees will learn approaches to incorporate creative arts into treatment and, in addition, barriers to virtual implementation will be addressed.
