Check out this Art Therapy Alliance Favicard On the Go photo submission from art therapy student Jocelyn Thoemke from the Minneapolis/St. Paul area in Minnesota:
Jocelyn included this note with her Favicard photo:
“I am currently studying marriage and family therapy and art therapy. I am planning on graduating in the fall of this year. I’ve been lucky enough to have art therapy internship experiences working with students in public schools, adults with various types of disabilities, medically ill children, and residents of a long-term care facility.
Right now I am in two internships. The first I just started, and it is working with 2-5 year olds on the autism spectrum. I’ll eventually also be working with the children’s families. The second is working with a therapist in private practice and the hope is to put together
an art therapy group for adults who identify as having a disability. My image is in honor of the children I have started working with. We use PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System) quite a bit, and I found this wonderful collection of art related PECS. I am so grateful for the Art Therapy Alliance Network, it’s important that art therapists have communities where we can share ideas and support each other.”
