Is this webinar only for art therapists?

  • No! Parts of this workshop will focus on specific aspects of the art therapy + expressive arts field, but the majority of the presentation will be valuable to other mental health professionals who are interested in building community online.

Will this webinar tell me I need to make dancing videos on TikTok?

  • Definitely not. We will explore different pathways to building trust + imparting information on social media. I’ll offer tips and video ideas that don’t involve speaking directly to the camera. The intention of this event is to support you in finding marketing strategies that feel authentic and comfortable for YOU.

I’m an art therapy student/future mental health professional. Will this be valuable for me?

  • Yes! You can begin building a presence online before you complete your studies. We will discuss ethical ways to communicate about your work related to your experience.

I feel overwhelmed by the idea of starting + maintaining a social media page. How will this webinar help?

  • Don’t worry! This webinar is not about becoming a content-creation machine. We will discuss burnout and explore strategies for recycling content so you are able to make the right impact with your online presence.
