Personnel Needed: Two Creative Arts Therapy Faculty


NHCU Fine Arts Building NHCU Fine Arts Building
The small fine arts program of NHCU (building pictured left) has focused primarily on performance since its inception. With the earthquake, the faculty would like to encourage and prepare the university students for community work that has a healing component. This week-long course would be taught to about 20 students and others and includes psychological first aid, trauma recognition, and basic creative arts therapy (and therapeutic art) techniques that could be used by creative artists in their own communities. Dr. Nix-Early will be leading the group and we are requesting two faculty to work with her in teaching this course. Conditions are very basic.

Cost: Estimated cost $1800 plus airfare.

    I’m wondering if this opportunity is available for this year. I’m a Master’s level social worker, director and adjunct faculty member. I’d likevery much to hear more about this and would be interested in making the trip. Please contact me via email.
