These are two Canadian conferences I know about, I cut this information from the Art Therapy in Canada Homepage, (see previous post for link). I invite anyone who knows about any other conferences internationally to post them here. Or if you attend one and would be willing to give us a report, that would be great too.

While currently living and working in the U.S.A., Dr. Linesch's roots are in Canada. Dr. Linesch will also be conducting a workshop during the conference weekend. For your convenience this year, we will be providing a lunch on Saturday so that conference participants may use this time to network with their colleagues.
This years conference will also be expanded to include the Second Annual C.A.T.A. Art Exhibition. As with the first exhibition, art exhibited will include the work of Clients, Art Therapists, and Art Therapy Students. The Exhibition portion of the conference will be open to the general public as well as conference participants.

The aim of the 17th Annual CATA Conference is to be held September 27th, 1996 through 29th, 1996 in Toronto, Ontario is to celebrate and promote the professional growth of Art Therapy in Canada. While the focus of the conference is on Art Therapy, CATA is inviting all Mental Health and Medical Professionals, Educators, Artists and Art Therapy Students. In so doing, it is the hope of the Canadian Art Therapy Association that we will be able to demonstrate the active role that Art Therapists play in our communities, working co-operatively within the Education, Social Services, Mental Health and Medical fields with other professionals. For Art Therapists, we hope to provide up-to-date clinical issues and information. We are including, at the request of previous years' conference participants, Pre-Conference Workshops on the afternoon of Friday, September 27th.
Sophia's note: registration forms for the CATA conference and complete conference information is available online on the Art Therapy in Canada Homepage http://www.io.org/~phansen/index.html
