Title:
Professorial Lecturer

Jennifer Bettini Baldwin, MA, ATR-BC, LCPAT is a graduate of The George Washington University Art Therapy Graduate program and has been a practicing art therapist in the D.C. Metro area since 1997. Her experience includes working with pediatric oncology/hematology patients at the Lombardi Cancer Center, working and establishing art therapy services within the Fairfax County Public School system with ages K-6, art therapy consultation for an after-school autism program, private practice work with adults with disabilities, and finally, working as a clinical art therapist for a private therapeutic day school, Accotink Academy, where she provides individual and group art therapy services for students in grades K-12 with severe learning and emotional disabilities. The art therapy department provides not only therapeutic services, but crisis intervention, outreach to the community and special art projects tailored to support and positively redefine the students at the school. She was the director of the art therapy department at Accotink Academy for 6 years. She is also an experienced supervisor, providing supervision to both practicing art therapists and art therapy students.  Jennifer joined the adjunct faculty at The George Washington University, Art Therapy Graduate program in 2010 where she teaches the course, Art Therapy with Adolescents. She also serves as an on-campus supervisor.  Jennifer is a member of the American Art Therapy Association, Potomac Art Therapy Association and Maryland Art Therapy Association. She has served on the AATA Governmental Affairs Committee. Jennifer is a resident of Falls Church, Virginia with her husband and two daughters. She believes strongly in volunteering in her community and strives to bring the arts to her volunteer work. She enjoys working with her hands and finds great satisfaction in the clay building and glazing processes, as this type of work allows for both a grounding experience (organic, physical working of the clay) and a releasing experience (glazing/firing process- where you are not in control of the outcome).
