    Research Seminar on Psychological Resilience and Arts Therapy

    * REPEAT EVENT *

    Explore a novel pilot study on Mental Health Immunity (MHI) through the perspectives of four art therapists in Singapore. The purpose of this study was to address existing gaps in the understanding of psychological resilience as a dynamic multidimensional construct. Despite its recognition, inconsistencies in defining resilience have hindered the establishment of a universally accepted model and effective intervention strategies. Art therapists, leveraging on the expressive power of art and creativity, might contribute to the current literature by providing a unique perspective that enriches the multifaceted nature of resilience. MHI's framework integrates psychological, social, and biological dimensions for a holistic view of psychological resilience. The study operationalized MHI from art therapists' perspectives, providing insights that enrich theoretical knowledge and guide future research. This presentation has no confronting content and is suitable for all levels of audience interested in mental health research and art therapy.

    PRESENTER:

    Pamela Lie received her MA in art therapy from LASALLE College of the Arts Singapore. She is an accredited art therapist (AThR) with ANZACATA and a certified adult educator with the Social Service Institute, Singapore. Currently pursuing her doctorate in Expressive Therapies at Lesley University, her research interests include mental health resilience, mechanisms of change in art therapy, and school-based creative arts therapies.

    This 5-hour refresher training is for professional members who have been supervising for several years. It is for arts therapists who have already completed supervision training some time ago and want to ensure that their practice is up to date and/or to allow them to meet the requirements to become approved supervisors with ANZACATA, if the training they have done does not add up to the required 20 hours.  Also, the new ANZACATA supervision policy requires approved supervisors to 'refresh' their training every 5 years.

    NOTE: This event is open to Approved Supervisors ONLY

    Current and relevant readings for all areas of the training will be provided.

    The training will revisit:

    • Definitions of supervision
    • Models and approaches to supervision
    • Arts Based Integration
    • Exploration of responsibilities and challenges
