The Art Therapy planning team is continuing to develop partnerships in the community to address the need for accessible mental health support.
Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy involving self-expression through art making, used as a remedial activity or an aid to diagnosis. Non-verbal and verbal communication and healing occur as thoughts, ideas and emotions are expressed through art. No art skills are necessary.
After having run a successful pilot project in partnership with Regroupement Naissance-Rennaisance in October 2019 with a group of women experiencing birth trauma, we launched our Art Therapy Program. As of fall 2022, the art therapy programming has provided over 70 people with free art therapy sessions.
This year we are pleased to welcome Claire Ponka , Concordia Art Therapy intern to our growing art therapy programming for 2022-23 and art therapist Dani Minuskin.
