We welcome papers, panels, workshops, as well as single- and multi-day classes featuring any of the creative arts therapies. We are especially interested in sessions that are multimodal, collaborative, and/or experiential. Single-discipline presentations are also welcome, particularly those with an emphasis on studio skills, therapeutic techniques, and topics of clinical interest. Proposals on essential skills in the practice of counseling and psychotherapy are welcome, as well. Over 950 attended last year.


Our Mission:

  • Enhance professional competency by providing a world-class continuing education opportunity
  • Highlight multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches in the practice of the creative arts therapies through practical and useful content, as well as creative and responsible hands-on workshops
  • Facilitate networking among a community of international creative arts therapists and supportive colleagues of all types and at all career levels

Proposals Sought from All Professions

Ideal submissions feature best or leading practices, 'hot topics,' and forward-looking ideas. Presenters need not be expressive therapists.
