Art Therapy and Floortime
Ms. Whiddon has presented nationally on the benefits of combining DIR/Floortime with Art Therapy principles to foster growth up the developmental ladder. She believes that art is a powerful vehicle for self-expression and supports the development of creativity and communication. As a developmental art therapist, Ms. Whiddon excels at bringing a child’s passion for art-making into a shared experience. She uses the art media to encourage reciprocal interactions and to support the development of abstract thinking. Ms. Whiddon is aware of the child's sensory, visual, and motor-planning systems and will adapt materials to promote optimal exploration and expression. She is also a training analyst at the Institute for Expressive Analysis.
Ms. Whiddon is a member of the American Art Therapy Association (AATA), of APA’s Division 39 (Division of Psychoanalysis), the Institute for Expressive Analysis (IEA), and the Interdisciplinary Council on Developmental and Learning Disorders (ICDL).
