The Covid-crisis as Opportunity for Art Therapy to Engage with Social Theories (Professor Ephrat Huss)

Registration is closed

All community crisis ( such as man -made and natural disasters, war, migration, ongoing deep poverty, and health crisis such as Covid) can create what is called a " shared reality" context where both art therapists and clients are dealing with the crisis together. Therapists must adjust professionally and personally to the crisis as they go along. In terms of art therapy, then adjusting to these community stressors can demand incorporating community based, systemic, positive psychology, short term and online theories into their art therapy practices. These adjustments can be challenging, in terms of settings, limits, therapeutic relationship, and professional identity, but they can also be a chance to open up to new roles, skills, identities, social relevance, efficacy and meaning.

The aim of this lecture is to outline and to exemplify these community theories and skills in terms of how they can be implemented within art therapy practice.

ANZACATA and the Hong Kong University Master of Expressive Arts Therapy Alumni Association (HKUMEATAA) is jointly organising the first online event for members in Hong Kong.
