    Let's access the joy, depth and insight of our very own artmaking to inform the reflective and regenerative practices required as a professional ANZACATA member. How are you going in your arts therapy practice? What's the truth of it? What are you proud of? Struggling with? You are invited to gently review your year; to identify and affirm the strengths, passions, skills and values you bring to your work and to acknowledge the gaps and learning edges. You are encouraged to envisage your ideal practice, then to translate your vision into intentions, goals and action steps – all within a framework of learning, support and self-care. This two-part experiential workshop is designed to inspire you to bring art, heart and practical strategy to your annual self-review and development plan, so that you can carry your professional practice forwards with verve and vitality, grace and groundedness, ethics and energy, purpose and playfulness. Practitioners at any level of membership or experience are welcome. Numbers are limited, to foster safety and connection.

    Dave GussakAs art therapists, we often find ourselves navigating the often intersecting, sometime disparate, paths of ethics, morality and legality. This webinar will focus on recognising these intersections and the often-confusing divergence therein, and will offer various strategies art therapists may use to address and mitigate such challenges. Dr Gussak (Florida State University), who has taught ethics for various graduate programs for more than 25 years and has helped develop the field's ethics documents, will rely on his clinical, research and supervisory experiences to facilitate discussions from which attendees will learn to: differentiate between ethical, moral and legal expectations; explain various circumstances in which these three philosophical circumstances may support one another, intersect or challenge each other within an art therapy context; and recognise various decision-making strategies to mitigate any disparities to provide the best attention for our clients. This webinar is open to art therapists at all levels within our professional and developmental journey.

    PRESENTER:

    Dave Gussak, PhD, ATR-BC, HLM is Professor for the Florida State University's Art Therapy Program and Project Coordinator for the FSU/FDC Art Therapy in Prisons program.

He is also the co-editor [with Dr. Marcia Rosal] of The Wiley Handbook of Art Therapy (2016).

    Assistant Professor Sheila Lorenzo de la Pena (PennWest University, USA) will introduce the concept of el duende, where a piece is worked on with a focus on process versus product for a determined amount of time – a month, 2 months, a semester. The process is documented through photos and discussed throughout between supervisor and supervisee. As supervisor and supervisee struggle through the layers and successive visits to the piece, insights begin to emerge. Having practised el duende for 3 years, Sheila still continues to learn something new. Supervisees usually have no experience with this method and tend to see more pointed struggles, changes and adaptations (in themselves). Nurturing and helping solidify the connection to/with our creative practice makes us stronger clinicians. As the creative practice deepens and matures, so does how we present that to those we work with.

    PRESENTER:

    Assistant Professor Sheila Lorenzo de la Pena is a board-certified art therapy supervisor (ATR-BC, ATCS) in the United States and a full-time faculty in the graduate art therapy program at PennWest University, Pennsylvania. She oversees community and virtual studios offered through the program. Sheila is also an associate editor for the Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, serves on the Accreditation Council for Art Therapy Education (ACATE) board, and serves as events co-chair of the Pennsylvania Art Therapy Association (PATA). View her work on Instagram.

    To be neurodiversity affirming is to acknowledge that all neurotypes are equal in value and valid in their right to exist. For neurodivergent individuals, such as those who are Autistic or ADHD, neurodiversity affirming practices have shifted the focus of therapy to acceptance, accommodation and empowerment rather than teaching skills to 'fit in'. Creative Arts Therapies are especially suited to neurodiversity affirming ideas due to their focus on relationships and self-expression, but to fully embrace neurodiversity affirming practice, a shift in philosophy and increased understanding of neurodivergent experiences is required. In this workshop, attendees will learn about the 7 key principles of Neurodiversity Affirming Practice and how they can be applied to therapy sessions, when writing reports, and when advocating for clients with other professionals. Insights into neurodivergent culture and differences in communication, emotional regulation and play will also be discussed. Suitable for therapists with basic to intermediate experience.

    PRESENTER:

    Raelene Dundon is an Autistic and ADHDer Educational and Developmental Psychologist, Registered Play Therapist and Author, with over 20 years experience supporting neurodivergent children and their families, and working with educators and clinicians. She is the Director of Okey Dokey Childhood Therapy and a lecturer in Child Play Therapy at Deakin University.
