Speaker: Sherry Van Atta Smelley, LCSW-BACS

Sometimes there are not words to describe the depth of pain experienced during grief. Talk therapy can feel exhausting for grieving clients. The expressive arts can offer a cathartic method of expression when words are not available or not enough.

This session will offer hands on experience examining many kinds of art forms to express one's grief. You will practice several artistic methods that can be used to guide clients through grief expression towards a sense of control and release.

General admission: $75
LSU alums & current field supervisors: $65
