"Rediscovering Art Therapy Traditions for Current Times"

Jordan Potash  


Keynote Speaker: Jordan Potash, Ph.D., ATR-BC

Expanding art therapy across healthcare and social sectors necessitates adapting the traditional foci of the profession for contemporary practice. Rediscovering art therapy history, particularly overlooked early art therapists of color, reveals diverse theoretical and practical applications. These models can be adjusted through the behavioral health framework to offer art therapy across the healthcare continuum. Further increasing client access to art therapy and reducing health inequities requires a social justice perspective.

The BATA Symposium provides connections with our creative colleagues who share our interests, attitudes, and aspirations. It is a time of renewal, connections, and networking. We explore the latest advances in the identification of pivotal skills that our variety of presenters offer to share. It is our chance to deepen our grasp of the complex craft and profession of art therapy and learn how we can continue to enhance our sense of expertise and fulfillment.
