2017 SYMPOSIUM PRE-CONFERENCE COURSE


 
 
 

 “Check and Create What You Need”: An Art Therapy Relational Neurobiological (ATR-N) Resiliency and Compassion Protocol.

 
 

Pre-Conference Course Presenter:

Noah Hass-Cohen, ATR-BC, Psy.D

 

During this full day workshop, participants will learn to use a resiliency based art therapy relational neuroscience (ATR-N) protocol and will gain understanding of the protocol’s associated neuroscientific basis. The workshop is of special interest for art therapists in interested expanding their trauma- based treatment repertoire skills to include compassion- based skills.

The first part of the day will review ATR-N CREATE principles: 1) Creative Embodiment, 2) Relational Resonating, 3) Expressive Communicating, 4) Adaptive Responding, 5) Transformative Integration, and 6) Empathizing and Compassion (Hass-Cohen, 2008).

In the second part of the day participants will experientially engage with the CHECK protocol which was published as a case-study and awarded the American Art Therapy Journal 2014 best article of the year. Time permitting, they will also learn about several other ATR-N protocols characterized by a specific sequencing of interventions. These ATR-N protocols emphasize the ATR-N transformative integration principle which suggests that working with creativity and expression, and using the arts to support adaptive responding gives rise relational security, mindfulness, empathy and compassion.
