When my dear friend, art therapist and the Director of Pratt’s Graduate Creative Arts Therapy Program shared this compiled resource with me, I asked her to please let me share. What a wealth of knowledge. One dive into these resources, and a heart may be helped, or perhaps a racist could be unborn.
