Course Description:

Are you looking for new ways to help your clients combat negative self-talk to push through fears and anxiety, and turn away from self-destructive isolating behaviors?

Join Pamela Malkoff Hayes, MFT, ART-BC, in this experiential day to fill up your therapeutic toolbox with new and unique art interventions that will stop catastrophizing thoughts and negative self-talk. Experience how evidence-based treatments will help your clients learn to tolerate frustration, and sit with uncomfortable feelings, without the immediate need to self-medicate.

Discover how combining art therapy with CBT, positive psychology and mindfulness helps to delay immediate gratification, look at the world differently, process fears, accept imperfection and let go of past anger and hurt.

Case studies, art experientials, demonstrations and interactive discussions will be utilized in this cutting-edge seminar to:
  • Encourage thinking outside the box using materials in a new way
  • Help clients look at how external influences affect them
  • Set aside ego-based reactions and replace those with thoughtful responses
The powerful art interventions taught in this seminar will help your clients transform their emotional response to past trauma, problem solve, change their perspective, and move toward a place of acceptance and gratitude.
