Nicole Porter Davis LCAT, ATR-BC will teach an introduction to acute immediate needs in trauma response. She will overview multiple significant community concerns and solutions regarding creativity, Art therapy, and trauma recovery.
Davis has provided services and mobilized sustainable art therapy programming following several traumatic events, including the the Sandy Hook School Massacre in the Newtown, Connecticut community. She has since aided in the application of Art therapy and trauma services in Charleston, South Carolina; Santa Fe, Texas; Houston, Texas; along with several regions of California, and most devastatingly our own New York City.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn:
Evidence of how devastated communities benefit from a Creative Arts therapy team
Knowledge in assessing and engaging a community in the aftermath of a massacre
Effective therapeutic bilateral exercises
Evidence based art therapy and trauma protocols
Self-care to manage vicarious trauma
An interwoven review of Trauma/Art therapy case vignettes
Clinicians will be able to implement two or more evidenced based Art therapy response techniques for clients with presenting symptoms of trauma as a result of acute mass trauma.
Participants will gain an understanding of two or more prevalent and presenting concerns observed within communities devastated by a collective mass disaster.
Attending Art therapists will learn how to implement their own Art therapy approach when working with survivors of American terror and/or Mass devastation.
