Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
Art therapy, music, dance, play, drama, and other expressive therapies are part of the expressive arts as adjunct modalities and utilized as therapeutic interventions in various settings such as mental health clinics, educational settings, hospitals, recovery centers, retirement homes, and hospices. Tools such as painting, playing instruments, yoga, and writing poetry are used to aid in the healing process.
This Special Interest Group will likely meet monthly on Sundays (time and place to be discussed/determined). We will begin discuss the mission of the group and plans to offer expressive arts presentations, hands-on experiences, and clinical discussions about the expressive arts as a therapeutic modality. No need to be an artist or a registered therapist in these fields . . . just a an open mind and curiosity to learn about the healing power of these creative modalities in mental health.
Join us as we spend some relaxing time with colleagues, enjoy the great outdoors, and get in some exercise. Our hikes take about 1½ hours and go over moderate hills. We meet one Sunday every month except July, August, and September. Rain or holiday cancels event. Bring water and wear comfortable shoes. Please review the hiking group guidelines that must be followed by all hiking group participants. Check out our next event.
