ANZACATA presents its first "Research Briefing" and we hope to offer many more such sessions for all members of ANZACATA. This afternoon offers two researchers in creative arts therapy. Associate Professor Patricia Fenner and PhD student in Creative Arts Therapy, Jane Song.

Jane Song
Ph.D. Graduate Researcher
Creative Arts and Music Therapy Research Unit, The University of Melbourne


Patricia Fenner, PhD
Adjunct Associate Professor, Art Therapy
School of Psychology and Public Health
La Trobe University

Jane will speak on her current research in the field of creative arts therapy.

A journey within and with: emerging learnings from an arts-based inquiry into participants' experiences of online individual art therapy with young people who have had challenging life experience

Love, ethics and evidence: Towards a regionally meaningful art therapy.

ANZACATA's origins date back to a time when Britain and America were considered the epicentres of credible knowledge about art therapy. Since that time education, practice and research in the field have expanded beyond those national borders. Our Association, located in the Asia Pacific, is situated to play a vital role in supporting the development of unique and culturally diverse contributions to the field including how we understand and define our discipline.

In this presentation I will reflect on project-based research which has helped me to learn about what is important to people in under-represented cultural contexts and some of the powerful mechanisms which can support meaningful practices.

When: 28 June 2021
Time: 2-4pm AEST
Place: Latrobe University, Bundoora (Melbourne)

The session will also be live via video conferencing and recorded.

The room is DW-113/EB1 (Donald Whitehead building) at Bundoora Campus of Latrobe University. Download the map.

Afternoon tea will be provided.
