Film, lecture on creative arts therapies


Yehudit Silverman, an assistant professor in the Department of Creative Arts Therapies, will present and discuss her film, The Story Within: Myth and Fairy Tale in Therapy, on Sunday, Nov. 21, in the DeSève Cinema.

In the film, six people embark on a journey of self-discovery by taking on the characters in self-selected and personally meaningful stories.
It represents a new technique Silverman ha developed based on her 20 years of clinical experience in hospitals that takes a dynamic approach to the creative arts therapies.

The film was made with the help of two research grants from Concordia. It was presented most recently last August at the National Association of Drama Therapy conference in Newport, RI.

The screening is open to the public, and starts at 7 p.m.

The Department will also sponsor a lecture on “Music Therapy and Your Essential Musical Intelligence (EMI)” by Louise Montello, of the New School University, New York City, on Nov. 26, in Room S-11 at 7:30 p.m.

You are invited to bring your favourite musical instrument to this presentation, if you llike.
