To know more about Judy Weiser see a presentation of her lifes work. An excerpt is posted below:
Director of the PhotoTherapy Centre in Vancouver, Canada, Judy Weiser is a licensed psychologist and registered art therapist interested in the nonverbal and visual aspects of communication and behaviour (including cultural and gender differences). Over the past decade, her counseling, consulting, and teaching/training has concentrated on two fields of interest: HIV/AIDS psychotherapy and “PhotoTherapy” techniques (using clients’ interactions with their own personal snapshots and family photos to learn more about their feelings, memories, and thoughts). Using these techniques, she has long specialized in counseling Aboriginal people who are infected or affected by HIV/AIDS, especially street-involved youth and adults (often also drug-users or sex trade workers), and their families, friends, caregivers and communities. She also provides consulting and skills-training to other counseling professionals, offers peer and community educational workshops, and (when invited) assists with traditional Circles and other ceremonies.
