This workshop will give an introductory overview of PhotoTherapy techniques and examples of work done in psychotherapy sessions and workshops.

There will be two experiential activities:
  • a projective activity using existing photos supplied by the facilitator
  • a writing activity based on a photo each participant brings
Note to participants: Please bring a copy of a photograph of yourself, which you feel represents your "true self". We will be working with this image, so please bring a copy rather than an original. (A duplicate could be made on a copier if necessary.)

Stay tuned—fliers will be sent about a month prior to the event. You can sign up then by filling out the information on the flier. Email Katy or Fabia for more information.

  1. This is from Judy Weiser, R.PSych., A.T.R., Director of the PhotoTherapy Centre in Vancouver Canada, one of the earliest pioneers of PhotoTherapy techniques and is a "TESTIMONIAL" to recommend Cathy Lander-Goldberg, regarding her knowledge, experience, and abilities in using PhotoTherapy techniques -- and that she certainly has the ability to teach it well!

    I have known Cathy for many years now -- and I'm glad to see she's starting to teach also!

    For more about Cathy and her work and website, see her listing on the page named "Who is Doing What, Where" on the website "PhotoTherapy Techniques in Counseling and Therapy", at:
