KEYNOTE SPEAKER
ANDREW B. NEWBERG, MD

The Neuroscience of
Contemplative Practices, Rituals & Trance States

Implications for Clinicians


Newberg-Photo-2011

Dr. Andrew Newberg is a neuroscientist who studies the relationship between brain function and various mental states. He is a pioneer in the neurological study of religious and spiritual experiences, a field known as “neurotheology.” His research includes taking brain scans of people in prayer, meditation, rituals, and trance states, in an attempt to better understand the nature of religious and spiritual practices and attitudes. His keynote will also address the implications of this work for the practice of the expressive arts in therapy.

STRONGER TOGETHER TM
(our slogan since 2010)

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. So here's our chance to inspire and learn from each other, relax, and recharge.

ARTS & HEALING

We refer to ourselves variously: Creative Arts Therapists, Arts Psychotherapists, Expressive Arts Therapists, Social Emotional Arts Facilitators, Arts in Healing Specialists. We are all of these, and more. Not only do we help others, we do so creatively, using one or more of the visual 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.
