«A Take-Off for C.A.T.S Week» in Montreal

The Creative Arts Therapists of Quebec present:
«A Take-Off for C.A.T.S Week»

This year, the art therapists of Quebec come together for a Take Off full of colours, dance and movement, sounds, music and drama and play. We propose to spread the wings of diverse art therapeutic methods and share with you the multifaceted world of art therapy. « A Take-Off for C.A.T.S Week » helps us see new perspectives on what lies ahead, to take flight and migrate towards greater autonomy. The vigorous current of images, movement, words and sounds creates a novel way of helping individuals, families and communities explore the experiences and difficulties of life, and to find creative ways of adapting to new circumstances.
Since time immemorial, human beings have put the visual arts, drama, music and dance to use for personal growth and development. During more recent decades, science has recognized the potential of art therapy in offering clinical services to those touched by cancer and chronic illness, elderly persons affected by the onset of dementia and inmates of the prison system, in schools etc.
The ever increasing interest for art therapy in medical, social and community institutions as well as in private practice settings have led to its acceptance and establishment. As witness to the positive results that art therapy procures for those suffering from mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress, or in helping people plagued by aggressive impulses, abandonment and relationship issues, art therapists affirm that the creative process can lead to heightened physical and psychological well-being. 
We are proud to present this professional fair on Saturday, the 16th of March, from 11 am to 4 pm. This fair (free admission) will allow the Quebec public to become more familiar with art therapy through the medium of presentations and kiosks displaying professional centers, training programs and particular art therapists working in diverse settings. Throughout the International Creative Arts Therapies Week (March 16th to 23rd, 2013), several activities will be held, including workshops, open-houses and presentations. You can view the calendar of events within Quebec at: www.dmtac.org www.aatq.org www.musicotherapieaqm.org www.nadt.org
Date and time: Saturday, March 16th, 2013 11am to 4 pm
