On April 10, 2022, ITA will host free confidential memory screenings in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America. A memory screening is a simple and safe “health brain check-up” that tests memory and other thinking skills. Each memory screening takes approximately 10 minutes, and while the result is not a diagnosis, it can suggest if someone should see a physician for a full evaluation.
Webinar: Introduction to Drama Therapy
Presented by Sara Renauer-Reid, MA, R-DT (she/her)
Drama therapy can help people find community through shared creation, practice new behaviors, and express emotions too painful for words. This webinar will focus on the core concepts of drama therapy and introduce widely used models, and well as elements of drama and play that can be incorporated in treatment for non-drama therapists. Examples of drama therapy interventions will be shared. Recorded on March 15, 2022.
The Institute for Therapy through the Arts and Music Institute of Chicago came together to celebrate Toddy’s life and many contributions to the Creative Arts Therapies.
