NDNU Art Therapy Grad Student needs help please. Here's an email from Alison Jackson letting you know how you can help. Thanks!
I am currently a graduate student in art therapy at Notre Dame de Namur University and I am writing my thesis on therapists' perceptions of their clients. I hope to be able to show a way therapists can improve their relationships with clients. I am looking for masters-level practitioners of therapy at varying stages of training, including trainees, interns, and licensed professionals. It would be extremely helpful if you would be willing to participate.
Your participation would consist of filling out some demographic information, an online survey, a drawing, a post survey and two weeks later a short follow-up survey. Your participation would represent a valuable contribution to art therapy research.
Please contact me at email@example.com and I will send you a link to the survey. Thank you in advance for your participation.
Mark your calendars for the upcoming NDNU GATSA Student/Alumni Art Show coming this Summer. More info coming soon on the show’s dates and submission information.
There are still openings for students/alumni for the NDNU Summer Art Therapy trip to Nicaragua happening in the beginning of August. Contact Gwen Sanders at firstname.lastname@example.org or Amy Backos at email@example.com.
The NDNU Ph.D program is accepting applications for class selection by April. Contact Richard Carolan at firstname.lastname@example.org. One of the program’s guest speakers will be Pat Allen. NDNU is grateful they connected with her at the NORCATA conference in Asilomar!
See you soon, Catherine Falkenhagen, NDNU Student Liaison
Hi Everyone, I’d like to introduce myself to you all. I’m Catherine Falkenhagen and I’m the new student liaison at NDNU to NORCATA. My role on the board is to bring and take information on NORCATA activities to and from NDNU. I’m also the NDNU GATSA (Graduate Art Therapy Student Association) Outreach Coordinator. The two positions work hand-in-glove with one another and I’m happy to fill this role. GATSA is working on expanding their organization and being more aggressive towards community service projects. If you have any leads or suggestions for outreach projects for NDNU GATSA, please let me know.
Here’s some interesting news from NDNU/GATSA:
Here are some great opportunities coming up:
GATSA is very interested in and welcomes any NORCATA members to visit the NDNU campus and to speak at the group on an array of topics. If you’d like to speak to GATSA, please contact me: email@example.com/650-810-6064.
Our next event is the Annual Business Meeting at Fort Mason on January 26th from 10:30-12pm.

From 1-4pm, Louvenia Jackson will present, “Stories With Heart: San Mateo County Behavioral Health and Recovery Services Office of Diversity and Equity Story-Telling Series".
