Pre-AGM WORKSHOP 會前工作坊
Title: The use of technology and multi-sensory intervention in Art Psychotherapy Sessions
For those who have developmental disabilities or special needs such as people with visual impairment, suffering from Dementia, Autism, or having different forms of learning difficulties, multi-sensory materials can promote their engagement in therapy as textures, sounds, and the smell of these materials can stimulate their senses, their feelings, as well as their imaginations. In this workshop, art therapist Ms Gigi Leung will share her clinical experience of how she utilizes different interventions, multi-sensory materials, and technologies with her clients. Audiences will be able to experience different electronic devices, such as contact mic and plasticine-speaker in this workshop to understand how these methods can foster healing and mental well-being.
