Training- Strength of the Creative Spirit: Artistic Resistance During the Holocaust

Wed 25

3:30 pm - 5:00 pmThis presentation will identify specific themes found

in Holocaust artwork, including identity formation,

resiliency, permanence, and expression, and explore

them through an existential lens. Issues of empathy,

burnout and the role of the art therapist as witness will

be also be considered in relation to the artwork.

Images of Holocaust artwork will be shown and

discussed. The presenter will share her own

experience viewing Holocaust artwork and how it has

guided her art therapy practice. Participants will then

have an opportunity to create their own artwork in

response to the lecture, taking into consideration the

elements found in Holocaust artwork.
