Creating Together: Art Improving Parent-Child Relationships

Friday, April 29, 2016

10:00 am – 1:00pm


CEU: 3.0 hours

Participants will explore how to integrate Filial Art Therapy principles into their professional and/or personal practice so can art can help heal and strengthen parent-child relationships.  This unique style of therapy involves teaching caregivers to give children concentrated attention, to set and maintain appropriate limits, and to bolster children’s sense of self-efficacy and healthy self-esteem while engaged in joint art making with their children.  A strong understanding of this research-based intervention will help you effectively:

  • Form stronger therapeutic alliances with your clients
  • Cultivate your clients’ creative development and artistic expression
  • Work through your clients’ resistances and defense mechanisms
  • Empower your clients’ parents with new skills to engage with their children in healthy ways

Facilitated by Heidi Tournoux-Hanshaw, LPC-AT/S, ATR-BC and Anne Briggs, LPC, this session will include experiential activities.  No previous art experience is needed. All materials will be provided.

Due to space limitations, workshops will be limited to 10 participants.


Number of Spaces Available:  9
