Imagine having access to leading edge creative arts therapists practicing across the globe, without having to leave the comfort of your own home!
Welcome Fellow Creative Arts Enthusiasts,
Are you a therapist, healer, or expressive arts practitioner who loves learning the latest information on trends and research in the creative arts therapies? Maybe you are looking for more tools to introduce into your practice to support your client’s growth? Perhaps your curious about other modalities such as music, art, dance, and expressive arts and want to integrate these into your work but you just haven’t had the time to learn more?
However, the daunting cost of attending a conference, taking time off from your work, and leaving your family just doesn’t fit into your schedule or your budget this year.
Introducing The International Creative Arts Therapy
We made it simple and affordable to access luminaries in the creative arts field without having to pay premium conference fees to access the latest information on the creative arts therapies from across the globe!
You’ll get access to some of the most prominent therapists and facilitators in the creative arts field, as well as innovative up and coming practitioner from across the world. These are individuals from multi-disciplines, who bring their unique gifts to this teleconference.
You’ll have the opportunity to learn from different modalities. I know it’s always exciting and reenergizing when you learn new information that you can bring back to the therapeutic work you do with your clients, It not only invigorates your work, but it also enhances your client’s work as well.
You’ll have access to the latest cutting edge topics. Rather than relying on outdated textbooks, you’ll have access to the leading trends and practices in the creative arts therapies field. These are from practicing thought leaders who are implementing the tools and techniques they are sharing with you.
You can affordably listen in and you don’t have to worry about the travel costs! I know there are international therapists and practitioners who want access to the latest information on the creative arts therapies, yet it’s nearly impossible to travel to the international events without accruing enormous expenses. Even for those who live in the US, often travel fees, plus conference fees (and time off) may be prohibitive. Also, you won’t have to use your vacation time or take time off from your practice to because you will have the digital downloads of the entire teleconference.
You’ll have access to the information from all the presenters and you can listen to it again and again. At traditional conferences there is so much information. You may walk away with conference notes and handouts, but when you go back to work you may want to refer back to what a presenter shared, but you can no longer access that information. You will own the recordings so you can listen again and again.
Listen to our esteemed presenters as you learn new techniques, expand your clinical skills, explore innovative creative arts modalities and re-energize yourself, and your work!
