Peace sign gals

"As a graduate student, I could participate in workshops led by top professionals
in all of the expressive arts. I am excited and proud to be joining this field."

"The BEST (and best organized) conference I've ever been to.
Varied in its offerings and responsible with its content...it fulfilled its promises."

"So much dynamic energy and passion gathered in one place!
Much more inspirational than a hotel setting."

The afterglow remains, as I continue to feel the positive effects of being there."


"ETS is an exciting, jam-packed meet-up of our extended professional family.
Is it 'legal' to have so much fun? Can't wait for next year!"

"Soul fulfilling! Thank you for an incredible experience as a presenter.
I want to come back every year!"

Participants at Previous Summits "Mixing It Up"


STRONGER TOGETHER TM

That has been our guiding principle in creating the Expressive Therapies Summit. After a half century of working in parallel process, it's time for us to gather and learn from each other, and work collaboratively toward the success of all the expressive arts therapies. Together, we are stronger.


CREATIVE and EXPRESSIVE

We refer to ourselves variously: Creative Arts Therapists, Arts Psychotherapists, Expressive Therapists. We are all of these, and more. Not only do we help others, we do so creatively, using one or more of the fine and performing arts. Not limiting ourselves to a single muse or treatment model, we enable others to express their innermost selves, regardless of age, language, or ability.


ALL THIS. . . and . . . NEW YORK CITY, TOO!

So, here's our chance to inspire and learn from each other, relax, and recharge in America's most arts-centric city.
