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:

• 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 over four weeks for a total of 30 hours of theoretical learning, followed by 32 hours of hands on training from Monday, July 27 through Saturday, August 1, 2020. The hand on training consists of direct engagement with clients under the supervision of specialized art therapists and medical doctors experts in movement disorders at the Villa Margherita Fresco Parkinson Center in Vicenza, Italy (located approximately 25 miles from Venice). A final social event will be held at the end of the training program in Venice.
An International Certificate of Competence will be issued by NYU Graduate Art Therapy Program – Fresco Parkinson Institute Faculty Board upon the successful completion of the training program.
