Caitlin Ewing is a recent graduate of our program and is currently enrolled in the Counselling and Art Therapy graduate program.  Here is her request:  Dear Student, My name is Caitlin and I am a graduate student at Ursuline in the counseling and art therapy program.  I am taking a course focused on art therapy assessments this semester.  I am in need of one participant who is available to work with me and complete several assessments throughout the semester for educational purposes.  There may be 8-10 assessments in total.  We would meet on campus for a maximum of 2 hours for each assessment in which the participant will make, post, and process their art.  This is an opportunity to be exposed to graduate level content and learn about assessment which would be beneficial if you are interested in pursuing a graduate degree and career in art therapy.  If you are interested in working with me and helping me learn about assessment, my contact info is listed below.  Feel free to ask me if you any questions or concerns you want to address about participation.  I am grateful for your time and consideration.  I look forward to hearing from you.  Thank you. ~Caitlin Ewing caitlin.ewing@ursuline.edu
