Greg Crosby, art therapy counseling and human sciences faculty, led workshops at the 2013 Annual Group Psychotherapy Association Conference in New Orleans.
Established in 1986, our MA in Art Therapy Counseling has been approved by the American Art Therapy Association since 1991. Truly, the art therapy counseling program at Marylhurst University is the only program of its kind in Oregon.
Initially, art therapy was used with children and adults with severe mental illnesses. Today, it is an accepted therapeutic approach that is recognized as effective with a broad range of clients.
The Marylhurst program is designed to prepare you to work as team members in facilities that provide therapeutic and counseling services, such as community mental health centers, psychiatric hospitals, therapeutic schools, day programs and residential treatment programs. If you are already working in the field, we offer workshops and electives that may be taken for continuing education credit.
Graduates have been very successful in finding positions; some have been offered jobs before they even graduate.
