Read what others have said about this group:
"I really enjoyed reading the book, and completing the exercises.. thank
you for creating an experience".
"Thank you so very much for creating this book. I think it should be a
requirement in any professional field as a reading. People need to see
the beauty in their every day lives, and this book really helps to
enlighten that perspective".
"I love the book and was so inspired by the explorations. I will
recommend this book to many people in the future. I feel so inspired to
continue making art on my own and thinking about my community, space and
how to look at bringing a sense of art to every aspect of my world".
This evening I had the opportunity to present on the topic of the ethical practice of working as a therapist and an artist- I met with a group of astute and curious students at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology and we talked about finding balance in their work, defining their identity as emerging clinicians and how to navigate their private selves alongside their professional selves. I am honored to have had the opportunity to talk with them and appreciate their commitment to looking at this aspect of their development in their role as they step into the world as clinicians! Thanks to my colleague Shan for joining me in presenting.
Response Art at Live Oak
Response Art: Exploring the client-therapist relationship
Date: Friday, July 19th, 10-12am
Location: Live Oak, 1300 W Belmont Ave, Chicago IL
As clinicians, often in our work we encounter a complex case or a particular client that leaves us feeling stuck, baffled or challenged.
In this morning workshop, attendees will be given an overview of how transference and counter-transference is inherent in our relationships. Participants will engage in art making to explore a client relationship or clinical case. Through the process of making response art and dialoguing with peers, participants will be able to deepen their understanding of their clients and the clinical relationship within their practice. No prior art experience is required, just a willingness to try a new approach in your work. Bring a particular case in mind to discuss.
