In this seminar Patricia will present on ethical and practice issues involved in undertaking international work in the arts and health. Responding to invitations from mental health and community services in pacific island nations and in South East Asia presents cultural challenges and risk for the well-intended, Western-educated art therapist. Immersed in new settings where (western) building block constructs of ‘art’ and the ‘self’ may be cast differently, can mean working at the edge of one’s interpersonal and intercultural awareness and skill.
Patricia Fenner is Discipline Lead and Course Coordinator of the post graduate Art Therapy program at La Trobe University, Melbourne. She is a researcher with diverse interests in art-based research, art making and mental health recovery and in how the everyday material settings of our work play a role in what occurs in practice. In addition to conducting research in the domestic context Patricia has provided consultancy and undertaken research on art making and mental health recovery with mental health services and universities in the Asia Pacific region. Prior to working in the university sector, she worked in diverse contexts including public mental health and school education, as well as, as a community artist in both Melbourne and Berlin.
