All Day Amy Swartz Mixed Media Exhibition: Down the Rabbit Hole (Multi-Day Event)

The Robert Langen Art Gallery's first 2017 exhibition, Down the Rabbit Hole, is a mixed media display by renowned Canadian artist Amy Swartz.

Using incongruous materials, Amy explores synergies between the natural world, consumer culture, fantasy and her own life experience. Similar to a plastic surgeon grafting bone and skin to reconfigure the body, she performs a related type of physical manipulation by conjoining and reforming objects.

During this process, she reflects on the complexities that link living things, and in contrast, our attempts to control life through artificial means.

Amy Swartz is a Toronto-based visual artist. She creates highly detailed and meticulously crafted collections that combine both natural and artificial materials in sculpture, installation and drawing. ´╗┐Her work explores the idea of obsession — not only in the practice of art, but also in humanity’s perceived control over nature, life, and death.

    6:00 PM Level I: Fundamentals of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (Multi-Day Event)

    Dates: Thursdays from January 5 to March 30, 2017 (no class on  March 16)
    Time: 6 to 9 p.m. 

    This foundational course will provide students with a theoretical understanding of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), including its history and emergence in the field of psychotherapy. As we move through the 12-week course, students will learn the skills and therapeutic interventions to allow them to use CBT with children, youth, adults and special populations. Through a variety of teaching methods, including lecture, in-class demonstrations, small group work and role play, students will learn to assess clients’ presenting issues, find a strong therapeutic direction and apply skills such as cognitive restructuring, behavioural activation and psychoeducation.

    In the final class, a panel of CBT therapists will talk about their experiences working from the CBT modality and address student questions. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

    • Place CBT on a continuum of therapeutic approaches, identifying both its contributions and limitations.
    • Engage in competent case conceptualization and formulation from a CBT perspective that sets a clear therapeutic path.
    • Initiate and execute appropriate cognitive interventions central to CBT with proper judgment and competence.
    • Initiate and execute behavioural interventions central to CBT with proper judgment and competence.
    • Understand research trends in the CBT community and make this knowledge relevant to a therapeutic session.
    • Critically consider the approach with individuals, couples, families, groups and other brief therapy constraints.
    • Increase their confidence with their tactical skills, allowing them to engage clients quickly and effectively by structuring sessions, focusing the therapeutic interaction and having clients leave every session with something helpful.

    This course is open to helping professionals of every kind across disciplines and worksites, including current graduate students.
