Workshop Presentation and Art Experiential
What's My Role? Examining Therapeutic Practice and Social Justice Through Cultural Humility in Art Therapy
Presented by Louvenia C. Jackson, PhD, LMFT, ATR-BC
This workshop will focus on defining the role of an art therapist regarding issues of clinical practice and social justice and explore how an art therapist holds therapeutic space with both their roles as a clinician and an advocate for social justice. The workshop will include experiential components related to defining/ dismantling boundaries, separating and/or integrating social justice to achieve equitable art therapeutic practice. The workshop will also focus on how to engage in social justice work and have it be sustainable.
- Participants will be able to identify the four principles of cultural humility as a strength- based approach to enact equity amongst diverse populations served in art therapy.
- Participants will be able to explore three areas of self-concepts brought into clinical practice through critical self-reflective art piece.
- Participants will be able to examine three aspects of equity in social/cultural constructs within the clinical practice of art as an integrated experience that can acknowledge other ways of knowing and address issues of equality
The art experiential will assist participants on how to manage hurt, high anxiety, and trauma exhibited by practitioners and consumers through self-care art piece. It will be used to offer points of reflection, as well as critical examination through participant dialogue.
