USING CREATIVITY TO SUPPORT MENTAL HEALTH AND EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE: JANUARY 17

Join us Thursday, January 17 from 6:00 - 7:30 PM in the Wang with Catherine Ventura, ATR, as she leads a hands-on, multi-media workshop on using creative tools for managing emotional health. Debunk the myth of compartmentalized Left Brain vs. Right Brain thinking while you learn to identify and recognize your and your child's range of emotions. We look forward to seeing you there! Light pupus and drinks will be provided.

 

Ventura is an artist, art therapist and art educator, originally from the Midwestern United States. Her international expat experience gives her insight into the joys and difficulties of transitioning into new and different environments. She draws upon creative arts, to work with clients and develop skills for addressing the psychological, developmental, emotional and social stressors that affect health and well-being. By engaging in a process of creation followed by critical reflection, clients can experience the power of art in a safe and gentle environment.

 

She has a BA in Visual Arts, an MA in education and an MSAT in counseling/art therapy and memberships in the American Art Therapy Association, Wisconsin Art Therapy Association, Art Therapy Alliance, International Expressive Arts Association and the Hawaiian Island Group Therapy Society. She currently runs an art studio in Kailua, Hawaii.
