I am currently studying for my MS in art therapy at Nazareth College in Rochester NY. I am also doing a practicum at a shelter for battered women. The Art therapy association is currently undergoing a proposition to certify art therapists with New York liscensure to practice as certified psychotherapists. I am aware of one school in Pennsylvania that has a masters level art therapy program, Marywood.
I have studied and practiced art therapy in a variety of settings for four years. I have found that working in a crisis shelter that art experientials that focus on immediate safety, for the children especially has been useful. Directives that involve things such as creating a safe space and others like outlets for anger, such as volcano drawings have worked too. I am also curious about your work with art therapy and this population as well. I am currently writing my thesis and it involves an educational piece on the shelter, but more importantly it involves the artwork of the survivors of domestic violence and how art is a healing expressive tool.
I would appreciate a response
