Re-Envisioning Art Therapy: Shifting From Scarcity and Struggle to Community and Abundance

Kelley Linhardt, MA, ATR-BC, LCAT, Kate McIntosh, MA, ATR-BC

Location: Orchid A/B

Edith Kramer advised new graduates to work three days a week but, for most, full time work plus additional hours to obtain credentials and make a living wage is necessary. This focus group will work to re-envision the profession to prioritize abundance, community and creativity and deemphasize scarcity, overwork, and burnout. Melissa Kate McIntosh trained as an art therapist at Pratt Institute and depth psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute. She currently has a thriving private practice as a licensed creative arts therapist in Manhattan while completing post-doctoral training for licensure for clinical psychology.

The Israeli Association of Creative & Expressive Therapies | Understanding baby’s embodied experience to promote social-emotional developments (Israel)

The Israeli Association of Creative & Expressive Therapies | Understanding baby’s embodied experience to promote social-emotional developments (Israel)

Dr. Suzi Tortora: Communicating without words

It is not just what you say but how you say it - with your body - that counts. We communicate with babies, and each other, before we even say a word. Babies also talk to us right from the beginning through their facial expressions, body actions, the quality of their vocalizations and even the way they look at us. This embodied experiential nature of our interactions can be used to understand the underlying meaning of an infant and young child’s behaviors as well as build emotional expression, social engagement and strengthen the attachment relationship.

This talk will demonstrate how dance, movement, music and rhythmic activities can be used to support and treat early relationship difficulties through a nonverbal lens. Participants will be introduced to a nonverbal analysis tool that can be used for clinical observation; assessment; and video-feedback parenting-infant education and intervention.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the role of embodied, multisensory, and preverbal experience in early infancy and childhood emotional/social development.
  • Understand the role of nonverbal analysis for assessment and clinical intervention with infants, young children and their caregivers.
  • Winnicott to neuroscience: learn how object relations theory and current neuroscience research provide a foundation for creative and movement-based interventions.
  • Learn how creative, multimodal and interactive explorations using dance, movement, dance-play, music and nonverbal expression are used to facilitate psychobehavioral change to treat early relationship difficulties.

      Chronic Pain & Early Attachment: A Movement Process for Awareness and Healing

      Suzi Tortora, EdD, BC-DMT, LCAT, LMHC

      Approximately 1 in 4 American adults have chronic pain. Research has shown that the development of chronic pain is associated with “insecure” adult attachment styles, rooted in infancy and early childhood experiences with primary caregivers. These early experiences – initially registered on a somatic, kinesthetic and sensory level – shape how we make sense of the world, express our emotions and respond to threats throughout our lifetime. This 3-hour workshop will demonstrate nonverbal ways to explore early relationship patterns through moment-to-moment dance/movement explorations that metaphorically reveal old and new ways to engage with self and others. I will demonstrate their movement styles and provide descriptions for the participants to “ try-on.” This workshop will include dyadic, small group, and whole group hands-on learning. Therapist participants will learn how to gain visceral insight into clients when moving with them and witnessing their affective and physical attunement during partnered movement explorations. Designed for participation by healthcare professionals of all disciplines and interested others.
