On Sunday, October 15, from 9:30 - 12:30 PM I will be leading a Phototherapy Training session at the Expressive Therapy Summit in NYC. In this 3-hour session we’ll explore the therapeutic uses of photography and photo processing for use by clinicians within a group treatment format. To solidify theory, workshop participants will be led through experiential exercises using their own photographic images. Through this process, they will learn how to uncover unconscious material in photographs that can lead to greater insights in treatment. Particularly popular with teens and younger clients, the use of digital photographic technology will also be demonstrated as it pertains to the processing of photographic images with client populations of varied ages and abilities. Three CE's (continuing education credits) can be obtained for LCATs for participation in this event.
As both an creative art therapist and psychoanalyst in private practice, and as an educator of graduate art therapy students, I have been developing and refining methods enabling me to integrate photographic media within psychotherapeutic treatment modalities. This session will demonstrate this integration.
