Dr. Jane Goldberg, L.M.F.T., R.E.A.T. (Registered Expressive Arts TherapistPhoto of Jane) and The Expressive Arts Training Institute invite you to participate in the year-long Expressive Arts Therapy Training Program that has been presented throughout the United States and worldwide since 1986. This training provides an opportunity for creativity and healing, personal and professional growth, college credits, professional certification, and specific tools and techniques for immediate clinical application.The experiential retreat curriculum has been designed to meet the guidelines of the International Expressive Arts Therapy Association (I.E.A.T.A.). All graduates will receive National Certification when they successfully complete the year long process by monthly attendance ( in an 18 hr. week-end). It is up to the individual participant to determine for themselves if they wish to pursue certification and/or to become a member of this association. Neither is necessary to have the time of your life…creating with others
