Art Therapy Comes to Tyler

Author: Kylie Doyle

There’s a new major coming to Tyler that many have been excited for over the past few years! In Fall 2017, Art Therapy came to campus as a new Bachelor of Arts degree. With a new major comes a lot of questions, so I took the opportunity to sit down with Dr. Lisa Kay, one of the advocates for Art Therapy as a major at Temple. Dr. Kay, along with many others, has been working on the creation of this major for some time now and was happy to answer some of the questions that I had about the major. “The major came about over a long period of time,” Dr. Kay stated. “We started to have conversations in 2013. Getting a new degree through bureaucratic channels took quite some time. Tyler Admissions fielded emails from students interested in the degree for a long time, with the Foundations Department and Visual Studies program also keeping tabs on interest from students. We moved forward after establishing that there was interest amongst the student body.” Read More

One-Year Horticultural Therapy Certificate

Author: Gracie A. Laychock

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION Thorough hands-training, this certificate introduces students to a variety of horticulture therapy skills. The program meets horticultural therapy requirements by the American Horticultural Therapy Association (AHTA) for becoming a Registered Horticultural Therapist. Students complete projects to develop skills in HT programming, activities, grant writing, budgeting, marketing, research, and interdisciplinary approaches to health care. A key component is learning to design therapeutic indoor and outdoor spaces that address universal design and support. Instruction and business planning for private HT contractual work is also examined. Horticultural therapy uses plants, horticultural activities, and the natural world to improve people's social, educational, psychological, and physical adjustment, thus improving their bodies, minds, and spirits.
