The second order of business is CreativeTherapies Chat topics for the month of April, which are listed at the link below.
CreativeTherapies Chat Room Info http://www.erols.com/leopold/CreativeTherapies.htm
Here is the schedule for April along with descriptions of how I perceive the discussions could be focused. PLEASE NOTE-I am NOT, and in NO WAY claim to be an all knowing guru on any of the topics, but instead I am a interested practioner of music therapy. The chat will be as informative (or as uninformative) as the amount of people who attend and contribute.
Wednesday, April 1st, 1998 at 8:00 pm EST (United States) When Creative Arts Therapists become Recreation Therapists - Boundary Diffusion Have you ever been in a job where you felt your identity as a creative arts therapist was buried by a myriad of other responsibilities that were part of the contractual job? Are you in that situtation now. This discussion will focus on the cause of and the effects of loss of identity and job diffusion among creative arts therapists in the field. Students and Professionals are encouraged to attend.
Monday, April 6th, 1998 at 8:00 pm EST (United States) Public Relations Skills in Creative Arts Therapies This discussion will center around the different ideas people have used to publicize creative arts therapies in their area as well as the importance of internal and external public relations. Topics that may come up include inservicing, funding, etc..
Wednesday, April 8th, 1998 at 8:00 pm EST (United States) Object Relations Psychotherapy techniques and Creative Arts Therapies Every month, CreativeTherapies chat will highlight a school of psychotherapy- April's highlight is Object Relations Psychotherapy in the different modalities. Theories of Winnicott, Stern, Kernberg, and Klein will be discussed in relation (pun mildly intended) to how the theories provide a framework for the different creative arts therapy modalities.
Monday, April 13th, 1998 at 8:00 pm EST (United States) Creative Arts Therapies Challenge Your supervisor has just told you that to highlight your program you should collaborate with another creative arts therapist(s) on a multi-modality project.

What are the pros, what are the cons? A lot of questions will be asked and maybe between the attendees of the discussion, a few will be answered.
