Abstract

In the field of Expressive Arts Therapy, the use of data and assessment are evolving. This workshop proposes a new way for Expressive Arts Therapists to use arts based practices and inquiry for assessment in order to obtain quantifiable data. This can be utilized in their work with clients and in understanding their own professional identity development. By reimagining Lisa Hinz’s Expressive Therapies Continuum as a coordinate system, an Expressive Arts Therapist can track, through numeric value and visual mapping, shifts in a client’s information processing, brain function, human development and creative intelligence. This workshop presents this hypothesis in detail and challenges the participants to utilize the Expressive Therapies Continuum coordinate system to map, both visually and numerically, the journey of both clients and the self as instrument. By the end of this workshop, participants will have a deeper understanding of how Hinz’s Expressive Therapies Continuum can be a tool for assessment and data collection, how to use it, when to use it and why it matters for the Expressive Arts Therapy specialization as a profession, with the goal that this idea, shared through the form of an experiential workshop will be a fruitful learning experience for emerging clinicians and an opportunity for seasoned clinicians to revisit research data collection practices that are based in our clinical identity by using the arts. The workshop provides an opportunity for community building and critical feedback that has the potential to shift how research is viewed in the field of Expressive Arts Therapy by using arts based practices for quantatative results.
