Healing Through Creativity conference

I'm a recreational therapist (as you probably already know). I use a mix of activity-based treatments to help children to heal and grow. I provide thearpeutic care for children who've been abused at a facility in one of the two Virginias. Expressive arts is one form of treatment that some recreational therapists use to help people heal. I use this in my practice as a Rec. Therapist. Art therapists have a more direct training in the thearpeutic healing through use of arts.

Today, I want to inform you about this upcoming conference:
