In this episode, Noa shares about Spectrum Creative Arts, a creative arts center based in Rochester NY. She shares the unique creative resources that the team has been publishing to Spectrum Press, their dedicated resource website for therapists. These resources are virtual and can supplement and inspire the work that creative arts therapists are doing in the field – songbooks, session ideas, interviews with other professionals, and many other creative resources. Noa dives into the specifics of their most recent creations, such as an E-songbook called “Songs for Social Distancing” full of songs to support students with their changes of COVID-19.
