Partnership organizations are invited to become host agencies for Art Therapy House, Inc. (ATH) services. These include: educational facilities, nursing and geriatric care facilities, hospitals, health care agencies and clinics, rehabilitation facilities, community and support organizations, and businesses. Many organizations that could benefit from art therapy services are not in a position to hire a full time art therapist. Building a relationship with the ATH will allow these organizations to provide art therapy services in an affordable manner. The ATH is also able to consult with organizations ready to hire an art therapist.
Corporate Team Building
Creativity in office team building is a must. Each member of a team brings assets of skill and personality. Through an interactive art therapy assessment process, office teams can learn about the skills and traits each member brings. Through art making focused on a series of goals determined by the assessment, the team can learn to capitalizing on the strengths of each individual.
Art Therapy for Hospice and Bereavement
The professionals at the Art Therapy House, Inc., (ATH) can provide Hospice Art Therapy services to clients, their family members, and friends and family in their home or care facility. Bereavement Art Therapy services are offered to the family and friends after the loss has occurred.
Hospice is a specialized type of medical care with a different goal: maintaining or improving the quality of life for someone whose ill-ness, disease, or condition is unlikely to be cured. The ATH can partner with your Hospice agency to provide Art Therapy Services or be contracted privately to provide Art Therapy services to help the client and family navigate the multitude of transitions that occur.
Bereavement refers to the whole process of grieving and mourning that is associated with a significant loss of someone or something. Although bereavement is often associated with the loss of a loved one, it may also refer to the loss of physical ability, employment, loss of a home, autonomy, or other events. The ATH can be contracted privately to provide Art Therapy services as needed.
The mobile capacity of the Art Therapy House, Inc. (ATH) works closely with the host organization to plan a curriculum appropriate for the persons served by that organization. These services range from one-time workshops to thematic groups held for a period of consecutive weeks, to ongoing scheduled studio format or support groups. The ATH provides tables, chairs, easels, tarps, and other space provision and protection when necessary. The ATH also provides access to mental health support for participants who may uncover painful memories or unexpected emotional effects from participation in art therapy.
