I have been teaching on line since 2004. Additionally, I am a Licensed Mental Health Professional in NY State working as a Creative Arts Therapist. I have been an Art Therapist for over 25 years. Plus, I have been practicing as a Certified Cognitive Rehabilitation Specialist since 2004. This means I have a lot to offer you when using an art based cognitive rehabilitation program. Not only has this program proven itself over time, it was also developed out of my own recovery from a traumatic brain injury. I personally can vouch for its consistent and valid applications as highly success in helping short term memory.
As a side bar note, I am an artist, sculptor, poet and an author. I love my work and look forward to serving you with these exciting and healing methods. From the time I review your application and throughout all of your training I am here to support you and help you reach your goal of helping others with cognitive deficits.

Think "I CAN help my clients more"
The Del Giacco Neuro Art Therapy (DAT) Method has been around since 1993. In that time, it has evolved from an idea to help myself, to helping others, to training others, to training professionals, to the development of a distance learning course. The later has been on line since 2004. Today, I am in the process of developing an iBook " Survivor to Survivor: Let's Make It Better With Art" a multi-media book that is inclusive to all who would like self help. The iBook is available as a preview on the iTunes store.
I have worked tirelessly to develop my program so that others would benefit from it and they have. Professionals and semi-professionals from around the world are using the DAT methods in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and schools. Many times the students facility (Where they work or study) have received grants to pay for tuition. You may want to use our free grant writing PDF file (Below) to help you get started. The PDF file for learning how to write a grant is called Chapter-11and the link is below on the left. The original version of Chapter 11 is an interactive training module for our students and not available to the general public.
