In this interview Cate talks with Emma Van Daal about Therapeutic Arts Practice. Emma is a psychotherapist and arts therapist who is passionate about supporting infants, children and families, and adult women moving through the challenges of life, mental health, and relationships. She is especially passionate about the field of trauma, particularly early life trauma, with a strong interest in early intervention. Emma has recently finished her Professional Doctorate in Therapeutic Arts Practice using arts-making-as-inquiry methods to inquire into the lived experiencing of anorexia which includes a graphic novel. Emma lives in Melbourne, Australia with her partner, has far too many art projects on the go, and is about to open a new practice approaching children’s and family mental health in a creative and play-full way.
