The Contemporary Landscape of Art Therapy
IATA 35th Annual Conference
Saturday, November 7, 2015
National Museum of Mexican Art, Chicago, Illinois

This year's conference seeks to create a forum to explore scope of practice in the field of art therapy. "Scope of practice" refers to procedures, actions, and processes that fall within the boundaries of a specific field. This conference will facilitate a multifaceted conversation around the methods, theories, and practices within which art therapists practice and create. We invite proposals that explore scope of practice from an individual, systemic, and/or cultural perspective. This conference seeks to give representation to a multitude of professional applications, including a discussion of practices that may fall outside the traditional periphery of the art therapy field.

Email proposal submission in a Microsoft Word document to conference.iata@gmail.com. List your first and last name and "Proposal" in the email's subject header.

See Call for Proposals document for further information on how to submit.
