 CATA 36th Annual Conference
RESILIENCE, RECOVERY & ART THERAPY
 
How do people deal with challenging events that impact or even change their lives such as the death of a loved one, loss of a job, serious illness, terrorist attacks and other traumatic events?.  These are all examples of very challenging life experiences.  Many people react to such circumstances or events with a flood of strong emotions and a sense of uncertainty. Sometimes there is an impact on sense of self and in relation to others (community and altered world view).

Yet some people (children, youth and adults) learn or developmentally adapt well over time to life-changing situations and stressful conditions.  What enables them to do so?  It involves resilience, an ongoing process that requires time and effort and engages people in various ways.  It is proposed that art therapy is well suited to facilitate and support resilience for recovery and restoration.
