Val Sereno, faculty member in MPS Art Therapy, presented this past Monday at the American Society on Aging (ASA) conference in Chicago. There were over 2,000 mental health professionals in attendance at the Hyatt Regency. Her workshop was a collaboration with two other psychologists – Britt Eksell, PhD, and Christiane Manzella, PhD – on Creativity as a Means to Expression of Emotions by Older Adults. Their workshop was well attended by 45 other professionals. Val teaches Community Access to second-year students and one of the topics that is covered is advocating for the field. This was a great opportunity for her to practice what she preaches!
