Karen's background includes a BFA in Visual Arts from Rutgers University and a Masters Degree in Creative Arts in Therapy from Hahnemann Hospital/Drexel University. A Licensed Professional Counselor and member of the National Board of Certified Counselors, she is also Registered and Board Certified by the American Art Therapy Association. 



Karen began her life’s work as an art therapist in June of 1987 at Wordsworth Academy in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania. She established groups for adolescents using art and music for healing. This was a successful partial hospital program for children and adolescents. In January of 1988, Karen became the clinical art therapist offering family counseling services at an Outpatient Mental Health Family Service Agency in Camden, New Jersey. She was responsible for weekly presentations to consulting psychiatrists, directed treatment planning and provided group art therapy for latency-aged, sexually abused girls. In September of 1989, Karen moved to York, Pennsylvania where she began work as an art therapist at the York Hospital in the Inpatient Psychiatric Unit for Adults. There she was responsible for treatment plans and team meetings with psychiatrists. In 1989, she became part of the diagnostic unit of the Children’s Home of York. She is still an essential member of this team for which she evaluates the art and offers art therapy to adjudicated, dependent adolescents. The demand for her services in the Crisis Nursery of The Lehman Center resulted in Karen becoming the Director of Clinical Services and Art Therapist for that organization. At The Lehman Center she was responsible for ongoing art therapy services for children. She planned the treatment for children who had been victims of sexual and physical abuse. The continued demand for art therapy as the most efficient way to quickly diagnose and heal a patient led Karen to establish her current independent practice in January of 1996. Sessions are available through in-office visits to her York, PA office, out-of-office therapy in a variety of psychiatric settings and through the completion of drawings and analysis online.



Efficient and effective diagnosing capabilities and her ability to change lives have made Karen a well-respected authority in her field and a sought after-lecturer. Karen publications include 
four guided imagery CDs: Remembering our Gifts (for tapping into inner strengths and increasing self-esteem), Change Your Mind/Change Your Body (with tools to tap into weight loss issues at a deeper level), Calming the Storm (with a focus on relaxation for reducing stress and anxiety) and Rebuilding (for those dealing with grief and loss). She is also the creator of the Affirmation Coloring Pages and the Mini Guided Journal. Karen teaches regularly at York College and is the art therapist at the Center for Mind/Body Health – Arts in Medicine Program that is part of the York Health System.

About Karen Adler, Dip TPAT
Assistant Editor on Arts & Art Therapy

Karen Adler is a Transpersonal Art Therapist, an artist, writer, curator and researcher. She is a firm believer in the inherent healing qualities of the Arts. She has run art therapy workshops for the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction, self-harming behaviour and eating disorders, for people seeking to bring about positive change in their lives and most recently, for health professionals working with trauma as a result of this year's floods in Queensland, Australia. 

She uses Art Therapy to help in the resolution of her own life difficulties and is continually surprised and delighted by the insight it brings. She has also been using journalling for most of her adult life - first as a traveller in the world and now, more often, for inner exploration and understanding.

She views Art Therapy as being highly adaptable and as naturally assuming the form of the group or individual involved. At this stage, she runs three workshops - The Journey Journal; Art Therapy : A Bridge from Trauma to Wellness; Creativity, Health and Happiness.

The Journey Journal™ is a series of five workshops which combine Art Therapy and journalling techniques with the concept of life as a journey, an archetype occurring in most spiritual traditions. These three components, when combined, provide the person with a powerful tool for living which they can take away with them on completion of the workshops. Art Therapy and Trauma is a one day workshop which aims at assisting people through the emotional rebuilding after trauma. Participants are introduced to the theory behind Art Therapy and to Art Therapy processes which are both fun and informative. The day is designed to be experiential and participants have the  opportunity to work with a variety of art materials in exploring different aspects of themselves. Creativity, Health and Happiness is a three hour introduction to Art Therapy and shows how accessing one's creativity can contribute to health, happiness and general wellbeing. 

Her education: Dip. Transpersonal Art Therapy, Grad. Dip. Material Anthropology, B.A. Library Science, Dip. Creative Writing, B.A. Fine Arts.

In the news... Art Therapy and Depression Class with Karen on May 12, 2012, in Maitland, Australia.

Depression effects one in five Australians. For some, depression is short-term; for others, it is a recurring motif throughout their lives. Depression often causes people to withdraw and become lost in their feelings, whereas art activities offer a means to release negative emotions, reconnect with yourself and with others. 

Karen has herself suffered from depression and anxiety. Art therapy is the means she found to be most beneficial for both understanding these emotional states and for ensuring they have no further place in her life. 

Come join her at the Maitland Regional Art Gallery...
