MAY 7 - CONFERENCE
ART THERAPY IN A GLOBAL STRESS SITUATION: SOCIAL, ECOLOGICAL, CLINICAL ASPECTS Alexander Kopytin
Alexander Kopytin, MD, Prof., Department of Psychology, SPbAPPO, Chair, Russian Art Therapy Association (RF)

The report presents the tasks and forms of art therapy in the context of the sustainable development model - a new ideology of a culture of peace, tolerance, gender, confessional and ethnic equality. The most important element of sustainable development is the ecosystem and natural resource basis of life, which presupposes the preservation of environmental and resource living conditions for future generations. The specificity of social, in particular, environmentally-oriented art therapy in its connection with the forms with the strategies of contemporary art as well as the foundations of the eco-human concept of creation, which combines natural and socio-cultural aspects are explained.
MEETING OUTDOORS: ALONE AND TOGETHER IN NATURE DURING PANDEMIC TIMES Barbara Parker-Bell
Barbara Parker-Bell, PsyD. ATR-BC, Director of Art Therapy, Florida State University, Art Education Department (Tallahassee, FL, USA)

This presentation will report the experiences and outcomes of students engaged in a Studio Art & Self-care Concepts class. The class included three 3-hour sessions in which students were called to explore eco-art therapy concepts through creative outdoor experiences. Students were given options to meet with the instructor and to engage in art making together at safe social distances or to work individually in a natural setting of their own choice. Following each class, students presented their artistic experiences and statements in the class's online forum.
USING SOCIAL THEORIES IN ART THERAPAY WITHIN A COMMUNITY CRISES SUCH AS THE CORONA VIRUS Ephrat Huss
Ephrat Huss is a supervising level art therapist, and senior professor, who chairs an MA in Art Therapy for Social workers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel. She has published over 80 articles and 6 theoretical and edited books on art therapy and arts-based research within social contexts. She has also received competitive grants, provided plenary lectures, and lead a shift towards social critical theories within art therapy.

While there is much literature on art therapy in contexts of trauma and disaster, there is less literature on how art therapy can engage with a long-term "shared reality" community level crises such as the current COVID-19 pandemic. This world-wide community pandemic has created new paradigm shifts within art therapy towards a more community, systemic and strengths-based art therapy, that has much enriched art therapy. This lecture will outline central theoretical and methodological developments in this direction, to enrich the tool kits of art therapists to contribute to their communities in times of crises and transition.
ART THERAPY WITH REFUGEES AND THE IMPORTANCE OF THE INTERMEDIATE SPACE Ruth Hampe
Ruth Hampe, Prof.Dr.phil.habil.em.in the faculty of inclusive education at the Catholic University of Applied Sciences in Freiburg, licensed child and adolescent psychotherapist (KJP), trained in guided affective imaginative psychotherapy (KIP), graduated art therapist (DGKT), chairperson of the German section of IGKGT and on the board of the German Society for Artistic Therapy (DGKT)

In refugee work - whether with children, adolescents or adults - the space-time continuum in coming together is of importance. When D.W. Winnicott speaks of the intermediate space in the therapeutic setting, it becomes clear how important this is in refugee work. The memory of the past, the home, but also an orientation towards the new in the creation of perspective forms of life become the main focus. On the one hand, it includes a certainty of where I come from - partly with nostalgic endeavors. On the other hand, it is also characterized by the search for security in the here and now. For example, motifs such as "The house" or "A place of wellbeing in nature" form thematic aspects that are repeatedly expressed in the visual design, both for adults and for children who have fled the country. The variation of the motif offers the possibility of creating a space for oneself or the surrounding, securing it and making it possible to arrive. Aspects of idealization as well as needs for a place of retreat can emerge that contrast with the individual life situation in the refugee home. The approach of the contribution is to show this ambivalence on the basis of exemplary created objects in the art therapeutic sessions and to present it for discussion.

What does art has to do with brain tumor? And how can consideration of art perception expression contribute to coping with an difficult life situation in the context of brain tumor?

In this lecture, art therapy interventions for brain tumor patient groups and their relatives illustrate the ambivalence of health and illness, art and therapy (expression and perception). The speaker will present an inclusive museum project which offers brain tumor patients and their relatives in a protected environment for cultural participation and coping with illnesses, thereby creating a bridge to participation in life.
10:00-11:00 MAKE YOURSELF AT HOME Pamela Whitaker
Pamela Whitaker is a lecturer in art psychotherapy at the Belfast School of Art, Ulster University (Northern Ireland)
Chris McHugh is a lecturer in ceramics at the Belfast School of Art, Ulster University.
Lauren Kwant, Art Psychotherapy Trainee, Ulster University, Belfast School of Art.

The materials of home are something to hold on to in times of uncertainty. Our possessions are there for us in their arrangement and in their constancy. These may be heirlooms passed down from generation to generation, souvenirs which act as portals to treasured memories, or functional items whose use confers a sense of familiarity and domesticity. Their durability situates the past in the present, providing 'ontological security' (Olsen, 2010), while their display is an act of curation and material story-telling. This presentation is a co-production of the disciplines of art therapy and ceramics meeting in their object relations. At a time when our existence is becoming increasingly virtual, the home studio, or the home-as-studio, is a place where we increasingly find ourselves. The materiality of homecoming is our collections that live with us in their proximity, significance and commemorative potential. This interdisciplinary conversation will place the materials of our lives centre stage and argue that how we live with what we possess is integral to our comfort security and creativity (Miller, 2008).
11:15 - 14:00 SURVIVING PANDEMIC: A HOLISTIC, CREATIVE-THERAPEUTIC PERSPECTIVE Beverley A'Court
Beverley A'Court, BSc.Soc.Sci. (Joint hons. Phil. & Psych.), BAAT registered art therapist. As a long-term member of the Findhorn Foundation Community, she has contributed to many programs, and developed many applications of environmental/eco art therapy. She is an advocate for the recognition of poetic language, the body, ecology and cultural traditions in art therapy (UK).

How somatic, nature and art-based self-care processes can be integrated with understanding archetypal aspects of our situation, with reference to traditional stories? The session will inspire participants to take a long view of our current situation and grasp moments of creative opportunity, mindfulness and personal benefit from a holistic response to, 'the wisdom of no escape' (Pema Chodron). It summarizes some points from the lecturer's presentation on the deep psychology of archetypal 'sorting tasks' relevant to aspects of lockdown and offers a demonstration of a way to work with story and somatics.
15:00-16:30 LADDERS AND LATTICES: METAPHORS FOR WORK/LIFE EXPERIENCES AND ASPIRATIONS Barbara Parker-Bell
Barbara Parker-Bell, PsyD. ATR-BC, Director of Art Therapy, Florida State University, Art Education Department (Tallahassee, FL, USA)

In this workshop we will explore associations with the concept of career ladders and compare that to associations regarding the concept of a career lattices. Imagery of lattices and ladders that are person-made or occur in nature will be reviewed. Lattice structures will be highlighted for their strength and versatility and as positive framework for considering life journeys. Following this review, participants will create their own lattice symbol to represents their rich work life experiences. Finally, a discussion about how to utilize such metaphors in times clients' life transitions will be facilitated.

17:00-18:30 Kit Loring What's Wrong With Me?

We expect so much of ourselves - such great expectations. We must be efficient and effective - we MUST be. We must prove ourselves worthy and make our mark.
Our bodies work tirelessly to try and keep us safe and healthy. They send us multiple signals to that end; and when their is injury, our bodies go to work to try and heal us. Our stress response is an appeal; the body pleads with us - don't do this, it will make you unwell. The multiple impacts of Covid take their toll too. Covid has denied many of us a remedy to the debilitating stress of isolation and loneliness. What difference would it make if we were to listen to our bodies signals? What response could we make that would bring a remedy to the emotional, mental and physical impacts of the multiple stressors in our life?
Let's ponder this together using our creative gifts to enlighten us and provide us with just a little relief.
