Notre Dame de Namur University: Ph.D. in Art Therapy Program
It was truly inspiring to return to Notre dame de Namur University in Belmont, CA on October 9, 2016 and to present to the Ph.D. students in art therapy Focusing-Oriented Art Therapy, as 1 of 3 parts of their "Art is a Way of Knowing" course. In addition to teaching the fundamentals of FOAT® and how the process accesses the body's wisdom and knowing, students also practiced in partnerships using FOAT® to work on their dissertation and research topics. It was exciting to witness the power of FOAT® to cultivate compassion, clinical sensitivity, applications and skillfulness, along with its application for embodied knowing for scholarly work.
