On April 19th Shalene Hatton, ATR, MFT presented an inspiring workshop at the Ala Costa Center in Berkeley. The workshop was held in a pleasant place that provided the participants with nice open outdoor and indoor environments. Shalene shared the art of her school-based clients, seventy plus students ages eight to sixteen years from the Esther B. Clark School at the Children's Health Council in Palo Alto, who met in small groups once a week. Their artwork reflected creativity and imagination. Workshop participants were then guided by Shalene in a hands-on activity that triggered creativity.
Shalene mentioned two books on creativity that inspire her:
Finding Flow, The Psychology of Engagement with Everyday Life, by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, and Viktor Frankl's Man’s Search for Meaning. I cannot agree more with her excellent choices of inspiration. Thank you Shalene Hatton for an inspiring workshop, and thank you NorCATA for hosting it.
