In this course, you will learn from a series of three self-paced online modules that provide a practical guide for those who wish to support therapeutic art making in their art teaching practice. In these modules, Dr. Lisa Kay offers key elements, approaches, and practical guidelines for therapeutic art education with students who have experienced adverse childhood experiences and trauma.
