The art therapy credentialing process is intensive, requiring the completion of a master’s level education and thousands of hours of post-education supervised clinical experience.

Art therapy is a modality of psychotherapy in which clients, facilitated by the art therapist, use art media, the creative process, and the resulting artwork to explore their feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety and increase self-esteem.

“Art therapy practice is grounded in the knowledge of human development, psychological theories and counseling techniques,” Scott-Hudson said. “Art therapy is an effective treatment for persons experiencing developmental, medical, educational, social or psychological impairment. My goal in art therapy is to improve or restore the client’s functioning and sense of personal well-being.”

Before her work at CALM, Scott-Hudson served as an art specialist for Girls Inc. and developed nationally recognized arts curriculum for girls in kindergarten through eighth grade while teaching art at the Goleta Valley Center. Her arts curriculum won a Girls Inc. National Program Award in 2004.

Jennifer Guess is a public relations representative for Child Abuse Listening & Mediation.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
