An International Initiative in collaboration with the NYU Graduate Art Therapy Program

 

PROGRAM GOALS

This program focuses on the training of practicing art therapists to master the theories and practice of art therapy techniques for clients with movement disorders and other neurodegenerative diseases.

The program aims at providing:
• Knowledge of pathophysiology, clinical phenomenology, functional needs and current standards of care in the field of Parkinson’s disease and related disorders.
• Ability to identify specific symptoms and challenges experienced by clients suffering from neurodegenerative disease, including motor disability, non-motor problems, cognitive changes, psychiatric comorbidities and effects of medications.
• Understanding of diagnostic and therapeutic challenges in the interactions of health professionals with patients with neurodegenerative diseases.
• Specific knowledge on art therapy practices for patients with neurodegenerative diseases and movement disorders.
• Skills to identify and assess psycho-physiological effects during the art making processes and the creations of these patient populations.
• Confidence to approach clients struggling with chronic progressive neurodegenerative conditions, and to deliver individualized art therapy treatments.

 

PROGRAM STRUCTURE

The training program consists of webinar lectures held over four weeks, totaling 28 hours, 7 hours a week of theoretical learning.

An optional practicum training will be tentatively offered in Italy upon successful completion of the theoretical component of the course, to provide direct engagement with clients under the super- vision of credentialed art therapists and expert neurologists. The practicum training is scheduled in spring 2021, pending on the international health contingencies and potential travel restrictions due to COVID-19 pandemic, taking place at the Villa Margherita Fresco Parkinson Center in the town of Vicenza, located approximately 25 miles from the city of Venice.

An International Certificate of Competence will be issued by the NYU Graduate Art Therapy Program – Fresco Parkinson Institute Faculty Board upon the successful completion of the training program.
