MTSO training workshop offers information on art therapy

MTSO will present a day-long training workshop, "Creating Healing: The Role of Art Therapy in Clinical Settings," 10 a.m.-3 p.m. April 3 on the MTSO campus, 3081 Columbus Pike in Delaware, Ohio. Tuition of $60 covers all sessions, four Recognized Clock Hours, four Continuing Education Units and lunch. Additional information and online registration is provided at

The workshop will offer clinicians information on the efficacy of creative expression in working with clients who have co-occurring conditions; the forms that creative expression may take relative to human development; how art therapy functions within overall clinical frameworks; and how creativity can support the clinician in his or her own self-care and professional growth journey.

Through the use of lecture, role-play and hands-on opportunities to try out forms of art therapy, clinicians will develop more tools to further individualize treatment for their patients and clients – and perhaps new forms of caring for themselves in their challenging and demanding professions.
