This workshop is an initiative of ANZACATA for its members. It will be facilitated by Carla van Laar AThR. For six years, Carla volunteered as Senior Advisor and facilitator with the Art2Healing Project. She travelled to Nepal annually to provide training programs for not for profit organisations working against the problem of sex trafficking. This training included Art Therapy First Aid Training in direct response to the devastating 2015 earthquakes. She continues her community service work this year providing Art Therapy First Aid training in response to Australia's bush fire crisis.
