Continuing Education

The Learning Center

The Art Therapy Program Learning Center provides engaging professional development workshops designed for art therapists, counselors, social workers and other mental health professionals interested in expanding their knowledge base. Workshops can also help therapists and social workers earn credit toward Continuing Education Units (CEUs). 

Workshops cover a wide range of specialties, including neuroscience and counseling approaches, trauma training and Jungian and archetypal concepts. Sessions generally last one full day and include one or more visiting speakers, visual arts activities and panel discussions.
