Summer 2010 Spotlight Story: Art Therapy in Chennai, India

Please take a moment to read about the excellent work that Meah Tweh has just begun in India:
 
Good afternoon,

My name is Meah Tweh and I am a Wayne State University Art Therapy/Counseling Graduate student  that will be traveling to Chennai, India with The George Washington University Graduate Art Therapy Summer Abroad Program course entitled 230.60 Art Therapy, International Social and Cultural Diversity to practice art therapy with the local population and to explore the art and cultural traditions in southern India.
This will be a journey for me to become aware of the implications of cross-cultural relationships in art therapy, understand the effects of my worldviews on therapeutic relationships, to gain knowledge of specific racial and cultural populations, and also to effectively engage in cross-cultural therapeutic relationships by taking part in clinical volunteer hours to work with the local population in Chennai, India and nearby cities. I plan to use social media daily to update all interested parties about my travels.

Please, join me in my discovery by checking these websites:
