What is a Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Listening Session?
A listening session is like a focus group: a facilitated discussion with a group of people, aimed at collecting information about their experiences, views, and responses to questions about topics related to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
Group: Art Therapists and Students with Disabilities
Art therapists and art therapy students who are living with a visible and/or invisible impairment of the body or mind, a condition that limits activity, or creates challenges related to interaction and participation related to one’s vision, movement, cognitive functioning, learning, communicating, hearing, mental health, and other needs. This group is open to art therapists and students of art therapy who are not AATA members, as well as members of the Association.
Important Note on Participant Confidentiality
Ground rules and guidelines are established in each group to help foster participant trust. Participants must agree to group confidentiality and not to take notes, photography, or audio and video recordings.
The DEI facilitator taking notes will use a method that provides a reporting of the overall group’s responses and themes but does not track or identify specific participants (i.e. who said what) but provides a reporting of the overall group’s responses and themes. Facilitator notes are available for participants to review and verify.
