Professional Development

Expressive Art Therapy and Visual Journaling as a Vehicle for Healing and Transformation

Date: 2022


In these shifting and emotionally challenging times, how do we bring support to those who may feel isolated and without community? Living through a pandemic has stretched most people’s ability to remain resilient and centered. The art of visual journaling offers a place for feelings and emotions to be seen and released, moving beyond the written word and into visual storytelling.

Narrative therapy using visual journaling is a simple and effective modality that uses supplies that most people already have in their homes. In this workshop, you will learn about a person-centered approach to therapeutic visual journaling, that can be applied both in person and also through online group platforms.

This class is geared to professionals interested in bringing visual journaling into their practice or life.
