The Creative Arts Therapies team at NYU Langone Health together with the NYU Creative Arts Therapies Consortium are excited to announce their upcoming virtual conference “Creating a Culture of Connection & Care Through the Creative Arts Therapies.” There will be presentations by the NYU Langone Health Creative Arts Therapies team discussing how the creative arts therapies assist patients in forming inter and intrapersonal connections during hospitalizations that may be stressful, turbulent and disorienting. Personal case studies will be discussed and examined by each presenter. Register and view the full conference schedule.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will understand how to identify a patient’s functioning level, strengths, and areas of need within the cognitive, communicative, emotional, musical, physiological, psychosocial, sensorimotor and/or spiritual domains
  • Participants will learn how to create an environment or space conducive to patient engagement
  • Participants will learn to consider a patient’s age, culture, language and preferences when designing a creative arts therapy experience
