ANZACATA is offering subsidised fortnightly online group supervision sessions with Penelope James for any members who live in regional or rural areas and find themselves unable to connect with other members or get supervision due to their isolation. The sessions will run for 90 minutes. Members from all levels, all regions, all countries are invited. The maximum number of participants is 8 members. First come, first served. The total cost for the 10 sessions is $500 (+GST if in Australia). Payment for all sessions will need to be made upfront.

This supervision group will provide a supportive and safe place for regional and rural art therapists to explore and develop their professional practice. Penelope will provide a confidential and contained space for supervisees to give case presentations together with associated images. We will explore the healing and symbolic properties of client artworks, discuss art therapy applications for specific mental health diagnosis, duty of care and best practice. There will be the opportunity to consider ways to navigate difficult work place environments, experiences of professional isolation and the challenges of seeking employment.


Penelope James is passionate about helping fellow art therapists develop their professional practice. She brings to supervision extensive experience as a group and individual art therapist. This includes working in clinical mental health with a range of mental health presentations. An essay of her clinical work: 'Integrating DBT-Informed Psychoeducation with Visual Journaling,' in DBT-Informed Art Therapy in Practice edited by Susan M. Clark (2021).
