1st Annual Creative Arts Therapies Conference

Attend the 1st annual creative arts therapy conference, a collaboration between the Portland Creative Arts Therapy Association, Returning Veterans and Marylhurst University! The conference theme this year addresses cultivating community by connecting human experiences within diverse populations. This includes solidarity across cultural and religious backgrounds, social justice, advocacy, intersectionality, integrating creative approaches and best practices.

The 3-day conference includes paper presentations, panel discussions, workshops, and a half-day advanced practice courses. Attendees will enjoy the opportunity to obtain 15 CEUs within multiple disciplines represented, including but not limited to: art therapy, counseling, dance movement therapy, drama therapy, music therapy, pastoral care and poetry therapy.
