“Stronger Together” – Expressive Therapies Summit

The third annual Expressive Therapies Summit will be held in New York City, November 8-11, 2012. This exciting continuing education opportunity offers creative arts therapists and educators, arts professionals, and interested healthcare colleagues the chance to come together to learn, collaborate, and network.

Attendance at this event has already grown to over 600 people from 7 countries in only two years. In 2011, a distinguished faculty of over 100 clinicians, educators, researchers, and others presented papers, panels, workshops, and full-day classes on art, music, drama, dance/movement, and poetry therapies as well as psychodrama, sandtray and play therapy for populations of all ages and abilities.

We welcome papers, panels, workshops, and classes featuring any creative arts discipline.
Of particular interest are sessions that are experiential and/or multimodal. This year, session formats range from 1.5 to 12 hours (two days). The 2012 Summit program will be selected from proposals submitted through our updated Submission site. The submission deadline has been extended until midnight Tuesday, April 17.

Proposal submission is open to all interested professionals, and is not limited by theme or creative arts discipline. In fact, if you are a content expert on a particular mental health topic of interest to creative arts/expressive therapists, we welcome your proposal.
