SVA Theater
333 W 23rd St

This presentation is intended to introduce art therapy theory and practice as understood with a neuroscience lens. Theoretical tenets of art therapy will be explored and understood with science, encouraging the understanding of art therapy as a neurotherapeutic and the art therapist as a ‘neuroplastician.’ This presentation will also serve to dispel common assumptions and set the stage for how to think about an integration of the fields in theory, practice and future research.

Objectives:
Attendees will...

- Define three ways that art therapy is a neurotherapeutic

- Describe three tenets of art therapy and explain why they are underscored with neuroscience theory

- Define why art therapists are neuroplasticians, and provide three clinical examples that exemplify this point

Art and Joy: Reclaiming Elderhood
Raquel Chapin Stephenson, Ph.D., ATR-BC, LCAT

School of Visual Arts
133 W 21st St
Room 101C
New York, NY 10011

Description:
This presentation will explore what is known of the connections between an older adult’s involvement in creative arts programs, improved health, and a reduction in health care costs in the USA. It will identify research that demonstrates how older adults can live well for longer through participation in creative arts programs that reduce social isolation, and research linking social isolation as a cause of depression and further health risks. Lastly, the presentation will also make the case for further research that more clearly describes the benefits of creative aging programs, and the healthcare costs that can be saved by their widespread adoption.

Objectives:
Attendees will...

1) Learn about connections between creative engagement, improved health, and reduction of health care costs

2) Learn about research that identifies the reduction of social isolation through creative engagement

3) Explore barriers and opportunities to working with older adults through the arts
