Science & Art Therapy:
A Pathway to Treating Complex Trauma
It is widely accepted that genetics and experience shape human development. This keynote address will offer the most current information about the causes and outcomes of repeated exposure to abuse, neglect, violence, substance abuse, and other physical and psychological disorders. Recommendations for neurobiologically-based art therapy treatment will be offered for individuals across the developmental spectrum.
Judith Rubin, PhD
"Judith Rubin is an original: A humble and wise art therapist who paved the way for the clinical credibility of art therapy. She was a pioneer, exploring art as therapy (which we now take for granted), at a time when this thought was innovative and original. She furthered the discussion of various ways to use art therapy and she has maintained a steady and invested interest in the development of the field."
- From a review of her 2005 book, "Child Art Therapy".
This was our FIRST NorCATA conference:
