Expressive Therapies Summit 2017 - Proposal Site


SHARE YOUR EXPERTISE, AND . .
 .

Juggler

Be Creative, Practical, Clear,
Concise, and Responsible 

 
Please share your best "tried and true" approaches and techniques — as well as those creative brainstorms you've been having recently — that your colleagues can use when they return to work on Monday. If you submit a workshop, make sure at least 65% of it is experiential. If you submit a paper, choose a subject that does not require you to read straight from your notes!

The most common reason a proposal is rejected is for an incomplete, poorly written, or unclear abstract that is either far too general or, conversely, far too specific. Learning objectives are also critical, so please follow our directions carefully. Your submitted abstract should be inviting to colleagues in varied disciplines, concise, and well-written in order to be selected by the program committee. 

 



Keep Our Mission in Mind


 
 
The Expressive Therapies Summit seeks to:
  • Enhance professional competency by providing a world-class continuing education opportunity
  • Highlight multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches in the practice of the creative arts therapies through practical and useful content, as well as creative and responsible hands-on workshops
  • Facilitate networking among a community of international creative arts therapists and supportive colleagues of all types and at all career levels 

Ideal submissions feature best or leading practices, 'hot topics,' and forward-looking ideas. Sessions incorporating multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary approaches are of particular interest, but single-modality-focused presentations — especially those incorporating hands-on experientials — are encouraged. 

Still Need Some Inspiration?
 We're looking for sessions on:

• Working with populations of all ages and abilities
• Clinical issues and challenges
• Approaches and techniques in the arts therapies
• Working in particular types of settings
• Multiculturalism and gender-related issues
• Wellness, yoga, meditation, mindfulness
• Professional identity, practice issues, ethics
• Theory, assessment, research
• Treatment approaches compatible with expressive arts
• Education and supervision
• Essential knowledge for counselors and psychotherapists

Also, special STUDIO SKILLS, such as:
drawing, clay work/ceramics, papermaking, mask making,
doll making, book arts, printmaking, textile arts . . . and others
. . . as they pertain to assessment or treatment
with populations across the lifespan
