We will talk about where art therapists work and how they work, including licensure and national credentialing. Information on Southwestern’s two art therapy programs will be shared, along with national and international trends. Come and play with art and ask any questions you might have about the fascinating field of art therapy.

More Than a Cursory Glance:
Particularizing Pornography and Finding Meaning
Thursday, April 5, 2018, 6–8pm, SWC Campus
Problems related to pornography use are becoming increasingly commonplace in contemporary clinical practice. Despite the growing body of literature on the negative effects of pornography, statistics tell us that the desire to consume and watch pornography is growing, forcing mental health professionals to contend with its increasing influence. That said, in academia and in mental health, there exists a kind of intellectual prejudice against taking porn seriously, doubting that it might have anything interesting to tell us about ourselves and our clients. When we make blanket interpretations about pornography, we run the risk of obscuring the particularities that are often so necessary to contend with in successful therapeutic work. This presentation uses rich case material to engage in what Hillman called “close noticing,” to particularize rather than generalize, and to resist prescriptive or moralistic ideas about pornography. In doing so, it offers new ways of thinking about, responding to, and engaging clinically with pornography in contemporary consulting rooms. To guarantee a seat, you must RSVP to email@example.com

Serving American Indian Communities
Janet L. Smith, M.S., ATR-Ret.
Thursday, May 3, 2018, 6–8pm SWC Campus
Multicultural counseling and art therapy have both come into their own, especially at Southwestern College. Increasing numbers of professionals are recognizing the need to consider a client’s background, valued cultural tradition, expectations and how well art therapy is able to meet those needs within the community as a whole. Advances continue in understanding of the client’s lifespan growth and development, while looking at the principles of balance and harmony in community. It is hoped, in the years ahead, that the needs and problems that American Indian Communities bring to counseling and treatment sessions will receive the kind of attention and service they deserve. It is with this hope that I share my own thirty plus years of service as an art therapist to the American Indian peoples and community.

Wisdom Rising: Journey into the Mandala
of the Empowered Feminine with Lama Tsultrim Allione
Thursday, June 7, 2018, 6–8pm, SWC Campus
This talk is based on Lama Tsultrim Allione’s new book: Wisdom Rising: Journey into the Mandala of the Empowered Feminine. A dynamic spiritual model based on 1000-year-old tradition from Tibet meets the gale force winds of the current world situation. She masterfully shows us the secret to harnessing the energy of the fierce wise dakini, a previously forbidden aspect of the feminine, whose juicy potency is so needed now. Through the Dakini Mandala, a universal template of wholeness, each of the five dakinis, embodiments of the fierce feminine, transforms an emotional encumbrance into wisdom. The mandala brings strength from the inside out, giving a practical method to become an effective agent of transformation. After an introduction to the Dakini Mandala you will be guided in a short experiential journey into the mandala of your innermost being, where the empowered feminine resides. Lecture will be followed by a book signing.
