been a while…not much of a blogger…but now I have an announcement…

Flathead Valley Art Therapy will be hosting a workshop March 7-8, 2014 at the Hilton Garden Inn for LCSWs, LCPCs, MFTs, and LACs. The title of the workshop is Finding your Ta-da, using movement and creative expression to treat anxiety and depression. It is approved for 10 CEUs by Montana State. There will be lots of hands-on practice and exercises and we will be referencing work of Peter Levine (somatic experiencing), Richard Schwartz (internal family systems) and Clarissa Pinkola Estes….

Returned last night from Bozeman where the Montana Art Therapy Association met for our bi-annual pow wow, group support, and planning meeting…We got our official website off the ground,, and included some contact info for a few of our members. I was a little disappointed that we didn’t hike Sali’s gorgeous property, or do any group art while we were there, but we decided that in May, we will push the business portion of the meeting off until Sunday, giving us plenty of time for self-care. We all have a lot going on in our practices and lives, so it is valuable to all of us to connect with and support one another when we are together. Rachel Long came from Billings, Sabrina and Sali are local Bozeman art therapists, Kim Brown Campbell traveled from Missoula, and Lisa Pohlman and I came from Whitefish and Kalispell, carpooling for the five hours there and back, chatting and listing to music…Steve Thomas was presenting at the Canadian Art Therapy Association annual meeting in Edmonton, so he was absent. We will be having a group exhibition at Boulder Hot Springs in April, so we all have to get working over the winter….
