    NorCATA Summer Workshop 

    Saturday, July 10th, 2021


    Graphic Medicine and Art Therapy

    Saturday, July 10th

    1-4pm

    Erin Partridge, PhD, ATR-BC

    No seat limit!

    Description

    Comics are more than entertainment or amusement. The field of Graphic Medicine is a vibrant, multi-disciplinary community with many resources to offer mental health providers. This workshop will introduce the use of comics and sequential art as pedagogy, as a way for therapists to work with clients, a way for providers to respond to and explore professional experiences, and as a means of self-advocacy for those with lived experiences. The workshop will begin with an introduction to the different forms and uses of comics, sequential art, graphic medicine, and graphic mental health. Throughout, participants will have opportunities to respond to as well as create different forms of comic and sequential art. This workshop will also involve opportunities to discuss how art therapists can provide new insights into the use of non-traditional materials and the implications of different media use in sequential art. It will conclude with resources for clients, educational, and personal use.
