Part 1: Enhancing Resilience: Strength Centered Approaches in Psychotherapy and Art Therapy, with Colin Ward, Ph.D., Janice Hoshino, Ph.D., ATR-BC, ATCS, LMFT

The purpose of this workshop is to introduce a strength centered art therapy approach to enhance client/family resilience. Participants will understand the principles and stance associated with a clinical strength centered approach and how this interfaces with art therapy. Experiential training activities will allow participants to transfer this knowledge to a practical set of counseling skills. Handouts will be provided.
Objectives: Participants will:
1. Process recent research in resiliency in relationship to the counseling process
2. Explore the principles associated with a clinical strength centered counseling stance;
3. Integrate a strength centered counseling perspective within an Art Therapy approach and related paradigm;
4. Translate knowledge into a set of clinical skills when enhancing resilience from a strength centered art therapy approach.

Part 2: Enhancing Resilience: Introduction to Developmental Transformations, with Fred Landers, Ph.D., RDT-BCT, LCAT, LMHC

Developmental Transformations (DvT) is a form of drama therapy in which therapist and client(s) play together, their embodied play incorporating movements, sounds, pretend objects, and roles in theatrical scenes. In this course, through experientials and discussion, we will explore how distinguishing between pretend and reality during a DvT session generates a containing playspace and prevents harmful behavior. DvT benefits clients by helping them lower their anxiety about the instability of life and increasing their capacities to discover possibilities and actualize the potentials that they most value.
Objectives:
1. Students will be introduced to DvT, a form of drama therapy, integrating experiential learning in DvT demonstration sessions with verbal learning during discussions of the theory and practice of DvT.
2. Students will consider how to apply their experience with DvT to their own workplaces.

Discounted rates for AUS Alum, students, faculty and staff always!

Christian Perspectives in Practice
Apr 4 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Christian Perspectives in Practice aims to promote personal and professional growth centered on beliefs in Jesus Christ as members seek to integrate their faith in God and His love for all people. These beliefs guide us in theory, technique, and development as professionals in the fields of counseling and education. We strive to support students with opportunities that will enhance our education through additional Christian counseling resources, fellowship, and spiritual support for our members. As we align ourselves with God’s vision for our lives, we welcome the opportunity to walk with others on their individual journeys, regardless of their beliefs.
