CALENDAR OF EVENTS

AUGUST 2-5, 2018

Proposals are now being accepted for NorCATA’s 2018 West Coast Conference which will be held at the Sonoma State University Events Center in Rohnert Park (Sonoma County, CA). Please help us to support recovery and rebuilding efforts in this wine country community. Many of our colleagues have either lost homes or know someone who has lost everything in the wildfires that devastated the area in October of last year.

NorCATA strives to continue growing and building our art therapy community through supporting research being done by our colleagues. The keynote presenter will be Janis Timm-Bottos, Ph.D., ATR-BC, PT. The future of art therapy demands a new type of creativity, solidarity, and social inclusion. This viewpoint explores the art therapy profession and the role of educational practices to envision change in uncertain times. Art therapists have the ability to offer expertise in the serious dilemmas facing humanity.

Proposal submissions will be accepted no later than Friday, March 2, 2018. Please contact support@norcata.org if a short extension is needed. Authors will receive e-mail notification on the status of their acceptance or denial no later than April 14, 2018.

Welcome to our 37th Annual Buckeye Art Therapy Symposium, at the Embassy Suites Columbus, September 27-29, 2018.  We are honored to have the renowned Noah Hass Cohen as our Pre-Conference Course and  Keynote presenter.

The BATA Symposium provides connections with our creative colleagues who share our interests, attitudes, and aspirations. It is a time of renewal, connections, and networking. We explore the latest advances in the identification of pivotal skills that our variety of presenters offer to share. It is our chance to deepen our grasp of the complex craft and profession of art therapy and learn how we can continue to enhance our sense of expertise and fulfillment.
