(Self-Study, 1.5 CEs) Speaking Out: Art Therapy for Clients with Eating Disorders

Lauren Fabrizio, MPS, ATR-BC, LCAT


This self-study course is worth 1.5 continuing education contact hour for LCATs in New York state.


COURSE DESCRIPTION

In this presentation, Lauren Fabrizio will discuss how art therapy provides a voice for clients with eating disorders. Lauren will demonstrate how eating disorder symptoms become a symbolic language to express underlying issues such as trauma, anxiety and depression. By providing a safe therapeutic space for expression through art therapy, these issues can be brought to awareness, processed and worked through, therefore giving clients a sense of control and empowerment in their recovery.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

1. Participants will learn how to recognize and assess for eating disorders.

2. Participants will be able to describe three ways in which food is related to development.

3. Participants will be able to identify two art therapy techniques that are useful with this population.

Lauren Fabrizio is a Creative Arts Therapist and intuitive healer. Her specialties include treating eating disorders, trauma, and anxiety. In addition, she focuses on relational issues, career coaching, financial empowerment and sexual health. She received a Bachelors of Fine Arts from New York University and her Masters degree in Art Therapy from the School of Visual Arts. Lauren has led art therapy groups and coordinated programs at several treatment centers.

Lauren believes in a holistic, client-centered approach and works intuitively; blending talk therapy with art therapy techniques and spiritual empowerment practices.

Lauren's passion lies in helping people to find relief from suffering and become empowered; achieving balance and fulfillment in their lives.


A reminder about self-study and continuing education:

For LCATs in New York State, a self-study course can only equal 1/3 of the required contact hours for your license renewal. So, if your license renews in three years, you will require 36 continuing education contact hours, thus a maximum of 12 of those hours can be self-study. The rest of your contact hours must be live events. This includes online webinars, which CreativeArtsTherapiesOnline.com will be offering on a monthly basis, starting in February of 2017. All enrolled students will be updated on new live and self-study course launches. So keep an eye out for our newsletter!

If you have any problems or technical difficulties, please contact CATO Administrative Support at [email protected].

CreativeArtsTherapiesOnline.com is recognized by the New York State Education Department’s State Board for Mental Health Practitioners as an approved provider of continuing education for Licensed Creative Arts Therapists. (#CAT-0014.)

Frequently Asked Questions


How do I attend a live event online?
Each month we will send out reminders and notifications by email, for the upcoming live presentations. If you would like to attend you will need to purchase the individual course that will give you access to the evaluation and learning assessment, which will trigger your certificate. After your purchase, you will be given a special link that allows you to register for the live event itself. A live event online counts the same as an in-person event (according to the New York State Office of Professions), because the presenters are available to answer questions in real time. If you belong to our membership program, on a monthly basis, you will receive a direct link that allows you to join the live presentations for free. So keep an eye on your email!
How will I receive the certificate?
Certificates are automatically generated after you have taken an online assessment and course evaluation, and sent to the email you used to enroll in the program.
Do you keep track of my hours?
Yes. Once you enroll in the school (whether it is through our membership program or for purchasing an individual course) a personal dashboard is created for you through "myTeachable." With your username and login, you can always come back to your dashboard, which keeps track of all your courses and contact hours.
How does the membership program work?
After you sign up for a subscription, you will receive unlimited access to a library of self-studies, as well as free registration to our monthly, live event continuing education presentations. Each month, the recordings of the live presentations are added to the library as self-studies. So, the library is always growing with new content, and you never miss a presentation.
What if I have more questions?
Contact us at [email protected], and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
