This poster session will present a unique collaboration of art therapy with instructional technology through the use of animated agents as a unique computer-based medium in art therapy. By constructing agents as an extension of themselves, clients can
progress toward more meta-emotional understanding, and the therapist can use the agents as a projective tool to better understand clients’ current state of personal awareness. The session will demonstrate examples of client-created agents and present future possibilities for using and researching the use of animated agents for art therapy.
