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.

  • Counselling Techniques in Addiction Practice (Online) begins

    This interactive workshop explores counselling techniques for treating addiction in an individual counselling setting. The ways in which we think about addiction impact the way we treat addiction and so we will learn about the ways in which the treatment of addiction was conceptualized over time and consider our own theoretical leanings around the nature of addiction. Participants will have an opportunity to augment their counselling skills with practice in a variety of techniques using Brief Solution Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. The focus of this workshop is on the application of theory to the counselling setting and there will be many opportunities for participants to practice skill development.

    Learning objectives

    • To become aware of personal beliefs of the nature of addiction and understand how this has an impact on treatment.
    • To provide an overview of BSFT and CBT and the use of interventions in treating addiction.
    • To practice, practice, practice various counselling techniques.
    • To learn a variety of skills in order to tailor treatment to the individual.

    This workshop will not include detailed information on Motivational Interviewing, Relapse Prevention or the Aboriginal population, as these topics are covered in other workshops offered in the Addictions Certificate program.

    CACCF: 12 core continuing education hours.
