LEARNING TO LOOK
A MUSEUM WORKSHOP FOR CLINICIANS
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2017
NOON – 2:00 PM
Davis Museum at Wellesley College

Registration is open for this guided art museum workshop led by Elizabeth Spencer. Art lovers, and those who would like to derive more from art, will enjoy this experience with like-minded therapists and expert guidance.

Registration Fee: $15. Register now, as enrollment is limited. Here is Elizabeth’s description:

Potential space is a multifaceted concept with applications to clinical work. Potential space is an opening where something new can be realized or created, by suspending the known for the sake of new discovery. In viewing art, potential space involves engaging with the art, allowing it to take us into our own affective and bodily experience in new ways. Experiencing art in these new ways can help us as clinicians to refine our ability to see, to open ourselves to ambiguity, and not rush to judgment. It can help us learn how to be more present in the moment, to tolerate and even enjoy the unknown, and not have to nail it down. This workshop will introduce Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) as a way to look at art and engage with potential space. VTS is a method and tool used to develop observation skills and deepen our experience of art. By helping us to see the new and be more open to the possibilities, to creativity, it can help us create conditions for potential space in therapy. And it is fun!

Register now, and join us!  Please send check for $15 payable to PCFINE to PO Box 920781, Needham, MA  02492.
