This year's conference will present a mosaic of interventions from Dance and other Arts therapies (Drama, Visual Art, Music) focused on fostering coping skills and healing by addressing individual and collective psychosocial trauma. Sessions will offer diverse methods and techniques that promote inclusivity through embodied multicultural artistic practices, and facilitators will share their knowledge and experiences based on the online-offline adaptations of their work. Experiential and theoretical sessions, panel discussions, research papers, and poster presentations will highlight the significant role and benefits of dance/movement and the other arts therapies within the mental health/well-being paradigm.
