Art Therapy for Enhanced Well-Being


Art therapy is a mental health modality, in which clients, facilitated by an art therapist, use art media, the creative process, and resulting artwork to explore, express, identify, reconcile, and manage challenging mental, physical, emotional, spiritual, and relational experiences. As such, art therapy, as part of a comprehensive, curative course, provides therapeutic opportunity for self-and-situational acceptance, significance, reorientation, and renewed motivation in personal wellness pursuits. Seminar participants are invited to engage in both the educational process and experiential practice of art therapy for enhanced well-being. This Faculty and Staff Assistance Program seminar will be facilitated by Rachel A. Upton-Rice, MPS, ATR-BC, LCAT, a registered, board-certified, and licensed creative arts therapist from the University of Miami Hospital’s Behavioral Health Services Department.
