Pub Discussion

Dr Genevieve Dingle will be presenting “The arts in health: what is it and how do therapists get on board?

Come to this discussion to learn about including arts-based practice in your client work.

In this talk Genevieve will discuss the arts in health and her work related to this topic. “Arts in health” refers to the use of music, art, drama writing and other forms of creative arts within hospitals and community settings.

Genevieve will explore the field using examples of her projects such as School of Hard Knocks,  the Live Wires Choir with retirement residents, and the Mater Young Adults Health Centre.

Dr Dingle will outline the mechanisms and effectiveness of such approaches, how you can begin to use the arts in your work, and some key points to consider.

The presentation will include video examples of art therapy, tango dancing and a mental health choir.

A pub discussion is a relaxed opportunity to observe a presentation on an interesting topic regarding cognitive behavioural therapy. There are opportunities for the willing to engage in a discussion relating to the topic towards the end of the presentation.

Dr Dingle is a lecturer in clinical psychology with research interests in the areas of substance misuse, mood disorders, and psychological constructs that may link dual disorders in particular emotion (dys)regulation.

This pub discussion has been presented in Brisbane and Newcastle, and Genevieve is excited to be presenting in Melbourne.  Be sure to get your tickets early, or prepare yourself to miss out.

Registration from 6:15pm for a 6:30pm start, upstairs.
