Art Therapy Workshop: Using Art to Confront Stigma and Support Healing

When:
Friday, November 01, 2013 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Where:
Lampasas Room 501
Description:

Too often, images of mental illness emphasize danger, hopelessness and decline. The same process, the creation of imagery, can confront stigma and serve as a countermeasure to change beliefs about mental health and healing. Come participate in an interactive discussion about the forces shaping these images followed by an opportunity to take action by creating imagery that supports hope and resiliency. Sponsored by the Common Experience and the Honors College, this art therapy workshop is free and taught by licensed art therapist Bess Green. No artistic experience is needed. For more information and to RSVP, contact cegallery@txstate.edu.
