Art Therapy Grants!!!

Variety the Children’s Charity of New York http://varietyny.org/ supports grassroots nonprofit organizations in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut whose programs use the arts as a catalyst to transform the lives of children in underserved communities. Variety believes that the arts have the power to create new opportunities for, build self-confidence in, and ultimately change the lives of the children it serves.
To that end, Variety New York is inviting Letters of Interest from nonprofit organizations for arts-related programs that have an impact on the lives of children in underserved communities in the tri-state area. Program(s) must fall into one of three focus areas — art therapy, arts education, and arts for social change.
1) Art Therapy: This area provides funding for programs that use formal therapy programs with licensed arts therapists to support the individual and social growth of children experiencing mental or physical traumas. Therapy programs may incorporate any arts medium, including but not limited to music, dance ,and the visual and performing arts.
2) Arts Education: The Arts Education category supports programs that use the arts in or out of school to support individual, interpersonal, academic, vocational, or civic outcomes for youth. Programs should focus on the creative process rather than the ultimate product (although the products resulting from these programs are often of high quality).
3) Arts for Social Change: This area supports programs that use the arts as a mechanism by which youth contribute to community development, social change, and/or social justice efforts. The focus of these programs is often multifaceted, with outcomes at the community level as well as the individual youth level.
Variety New York awards grants of up to $20,000 per project or program. First-year applicants typically receive grants of up to $5,000.
Letters of Interest must be received no later than November 21, 2016. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application.
See the Variety New York website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.

Ugh... Anxiety. It makes your skin crawl, your hands shake, break out in cold sweats. That unexplainable feeling of dread and fear. We all experience it from time to time. It doesn't matter how old you are or how much money you make, everyone has had to deal with anxiety of some kind. The key is how to manage it, how to deal with it or how to prevent anxiety from impacting your life. In this interesting Huffington Post article, writer offers her own top 8 practices to deal with anxiety.

I'm really hoping to see a lot of CAT's at NYATA's licensure event at Pratt on October 23rd. It's an opportunity to get current and future licensure questions answered by David Hamilton of the State office of the Professions. It will also be an opportunity to come together and discuss the strong limitations Creative Art Therapy services have when attempting to be covered by insurance companies. This is a huge opportunity to come together as an industry to address the gigantic elephant in the room. Current students will benefit by this event as well by getting their licensure questions answere on the spot and get a thorough understanding of what it takes to operate a private practice as an LCAT. #arttherapy #arttherapist #lcatnews

What is.. and what isn't Art Therapy??? The ArtTherapy.org helps make things clear...

Such great information for people just discovering Creative Art Therapy. It's incredibly important that people not only understand what Art Therapy is, but what it isn't as the modality begins to become even more widely accepted. http://arttherapy.org/clarifying-use-of-art-therapy/

BESSEL VAN DER KOLK - Restoring the Body Podcast

Are you familiar with Dr. Bessel van der Kolk? He is a fantastic Dutch Psychiatrist in Boston whose research over the past 4 decades into Post Traumatic Stress has shown us new ways to look at trauma and its effect on the development of mind, brain and body. His research and published works really delve into the interaction of attachment, neurobiology and developmental aspects of how trauma affects the individual. His knowledge and groundbreaking research had earned him the position of co-principal investigator in the field trials for the DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. His published works include Traumatic Stress: The Effects of Overwhelming Experience on the Mind, Body and Society and The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma.

Personally, I am just beginning to dive into his research and was inspired to do so after listening to the OnBeing.org podcast “Restoring the Body: Yoga, EMDR and Treating Trauma.

“Human memory is a sensory experience, says psychiatrist Bessel van der Kolk. Through his longtime research and innovation in trauma treatment, he shares what he's learning about how bodywork like yoga or eye movement therapy can restore a sense of goodness and safety. What he’s learning speaks to a resilience we can all cultivate in the face of the overwhelming events — which, after all, make up the drama of culture, of news, and of life”

-OnBeing.org

I can’t recommend listening to this podcast enough. I also believe that you should enjoy many of the other podcasts available on the site.
