SAIC Well represented in the latest issue of Art Therapy
Have you received you latest issue of Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association? If so, you have probably noticed the strong showing from the MAAT program. Faculty member Savneet Talwar (the new Associate Editor) served as Guest Editor for this special issue on culture, diversity & identity. MAAT Instructor Leah Gipson contributed a viewpoint titled “Is Cultural Competence Enough? Deepening Social Justice Pedagogy in Art Therapy”. Articles were also written by alumnae Yasmine Awais (“Efforts in Increasing Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Field of Art Therapy”—with Ann Marie Yali) and Karen Parisian (“Identity Formation: Art Therapy and an Adolescent's Search for Self and Belonging”). Even the cover art is by a current MAAT student, Luisa Ospina.
Congratulations to them all.
