We are both in the early stages of our careers as art therapists. We want to strengthen our connection with our art therapy colleagues, so we started a podcast. In this podcast, we interview a variety of art therapists to build community, share knowledge and join in the efforts to bring art therapy into the digital age. We are thrilled to bring you this content and can't wait for your thoughts and feedback.

1.4 Let's Tell Folks What We Do with Dr. Melissa Satterberg
Dr. Melissa Satterberg, PhD, LMFT, ATR-BC was part of the first cohort of Notre Dame de Namur University's PhD Art Therapy program. Dr. Satterberg noticed a large gap in her art therapy training around issues impacting the LGBTQ+ community. In this interview, she shares about the Kaleidoscope art therapy curriculum that she developed in response to this gap. She also reflects on her work as a supervisor, educator and art therapist and she shares her views on "telling folks what we do" as art therapists as we are often, the only art therapists within a team of other clinicians. We also got to pick her brain on how she keeps art therapy alive and present in community.

In this interview, she shares about her experience using art therapy in a variety of environments and her lessons on “taking up space” as an art therapist.

Dr. Partridge has a PhD in art therapy and is a board certified, registered art therapist. She has a range of clinical experience, including in community, pediatric, forensic, and geriatric settings.
