It was an exciting day for two of our talented clients, performing a music set at the Autism Speaks walk. Skilled guitar playing and passionate singing from both inspired the audience. They were joined by Esther Thane, Executive Director who provided back up vocals/drums. So proud of their accomplishment!
ET Music Therapy staff were honored to experience an art therapy based afternoon with Cyntha Gonzalez. We were introduced to the Creative Response Therapy™ (CRT) which included her Spontaneous Painting method. One of the art works centered on Self Portrait, and both experiences were followed by a writing exercise. Thank you so much to Cyntha, who travelled from Dubai- where she has been living and offering her therapeutic services for the past 19 years.
Cyntha Gonzalez, creator of the Creative Response Therapy™
Cyntha Gonzalez began the creation of Creative Response Therapy™ in Paris, France in 1989, applying her background of Transpersonal Psychology and counseling, as well as non-ordinary states work, supporting the client to access deeper states of consciousness with the intention of healing and integration. She expanded the modalities beyond the initial Spontaneous Painting, to include Spontaneous Clay, Collage, Face Mask, Coloring Mandalas and Sand Mandalas. She also taught it in conjunction with Holotropic Breathwork, Constellation, Radical Forgiveness and Relationship workshops and her long-running yearlong Transpersonal Counseling Course. She initially taught private classes as well as trained medical practitioners throughout France, including psychologists, occupational therapists, geriatric and psychiatric nurses and special needs practitioners. She moved on to the UK and then the UAE, from where she is currently based and teaches this method throughout the Middle East, India, the Americas and Europe, both in person and online through Mundo Pato's Unitus TI Cloud platform.
