Thank you to those who responded earlier and took time out of your day to contact us and respond to a concern that was brought to our attention about falsely advertising art therapy that was to be aired on DPTV. We would like to communicate with you all that the artist responded and apologized as did the Center for Performance Arts and Learning where they have deleted the event and DPTV has expressed their concern in following through ethically and they do not see anything regarding this manner planned to be aired. We appreciate your passion and service for others through ethical art therapy practices as we continue to navigate situations such as this it's important to support one another so thank you for working together.

A post from our new Michigan Association of Art Therapy President Leara Glinzak, Art therapy prescriptions!

This is a prescription for art therapy. Last week I had a conversation where someone shared with me her dream is to see art therapy prescribed- I laughed and shared I had the same dream. Internally I thought well may be I would live to see the day this would happen and it was a very small seed of hope as I weighed the odds. Today someone came to me with a prescription from her Doctor for art therapy and I think I was more shocked than anything else as I stared at that little piece of paper - I lived to see the day despite how the odds felt in this favor as the Universe returned that one very quickly.

The first art therapist be hired full time by a museum @the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

Is a museum visit just what the doctor ordered? In Montreal, medical professionals can prescribe you a museum visit. There's also a full-time art therapist on staff.
