Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Our major programs include the following: a)Beginning October 1, 2004, in collaboration with United Against Sexual Assault of Sonoma County, CCAT will develop a short-term therapeutic model for work with survivors of trauma. In the process CCAT will provide UASA with 25-40 hours of post-Masters intern counseling a week. b)The Purple Apple Project is a creative arts program designed to foster self-expression and self-esteem among children. Through a series of open-ended visual art experiences, students are guided into a process that sparks imagination, accesses feelings, develops critical thinking skills and nurtures the ability to create. For over ten years the Purple Apple has been offers in public and private schools, children's summer programs and juvenile hall. c) The Art Therapy Education (ATEP) program honors the humanistic/transpersonal approach to education of the Psychology Department at Sonoma State University, where students earn a Masters Degree in Psychology. ATEP students are challenged through a deepening spiral of learning to embody the Principles, practices and Applications essential to the role of a professional Art Therapist. Training involves internships at agencies that provide experience with diverse client populations including children with HIV or special education needs, at-risk teens, youth in detention, clients with substance abuse, chronic or terminal illness, women in shelters, the homeless and psychiatric patients. d) Playback theatre is a theatre of storytelling through a unique collaboration between performers and audience. The sharing of stories is an ancient and universal ritual and a vital means of integration and healing for any community. Playback Theatre is performed in schools, prisons, senior centers, hospital, shelters...wherever there is a story to be told. e) Begun after 9/11, the Care Flags project was created to help people grieve, listen, and share. Based on the Eastern tradition of flying Prayer Flags as spiritual practice, the Care Flags are painted with symbols that represent qualities such as compassion, wisdom, strength, harmony and community, and encourage us to live more mindfully and help restore our inner calm.
