1 CE Hour
“PhotoTherapy & Photovoice: Applications for Counselors”
Charaya Upton & Alexandra Barnette
Online, anytime access to a pre-recorded webinar.
This webinar was recorded during our 2020 Virtual Counseling and Therapy Summit.
PhotoTherapy began around 1977 and PhotoVoice started in the early 1990s, but the applications of both of these interventions are still relevant today. In fact, with the growth of modern technology and easy access to devices with cameras, the use of photography is becoming more popular. This presentation is going to describe the differences between these two approaches and how counselors can use them with their clients.
- Following this presentation, participants will be able to understand the history behind the different approaches to photography in counseling.
- They will also be able to understand the current applications for using phototherapy verses using photovoice.
- Lastly, they will understand the strengths and weaknesses of these approaches and discuss collaboratively how they could apply these approaches to their own work with clients.
