This workshop will explore how mindfulness can be cultivated through an Expressive Arts Therapy approach, and how Expressive Arts approaches can cultivate mindfulness. There will be a focus on visual and writing modalities, as well as mindfulness practices.*

For example:

  • Creating a safe space for the arts process
  • Witnessing the process
  • Sensory poetry
  • Visual Gratitude
  • Body Map
  • Artful Loving Kindness

Participants will have hands-on opportunities to experience how to work with arts modalities and mindfulness, as well as discussions to refine their understanding and work on direct clinical application issues.

Learning Objectives

  1. Participants will gain an understanding of how and why the expressive arts and mindfulness can work together therapeutically.
  2. Participants will gain working knowledge of how to integrate the expressive arts and mindfulness, and how to safely put this into clinical practice.
  3. Participants will engage in hands-on visual, writing, and mindfulness exercises to gain a deeper understanding of how the integration between expressive arts modalities and mindfulness can be utilized professionally and personally.
  4. Participants will learn basic, person-centered approaches to foster the integration of expressive arts and mindfulness in clinical practice.
