PDF version of Weiser's Bio & Publications

 


      Judy Weiser is a psychologist, art therapist, consultant, trainer, college instructor, and author interested in the visual aspects of emotional communication, personal meaning, "figuring things out", and related behaviors (in individuals, families, societies, and cultures) -- and especially the emotional contents and personal meanings embedded in people's personal snapshots and family photos.


    One of the earliest pioneers of "PhotoTherapy" techniques, Judy has spent over 35 years developing, teaching, and consulting and providing mentoring about PhotoTherapy techniques (along with the related techniques of "Therapeutic Photography", "VideoTherapy" and "Photo Art Therapy"), while actively using these during her previous work in her second specialty area of therapy to help clients cope with the emotional, mental, spiritual, and cultural issues relating to living with HIV/AIDS (especially for Native/Indigenous people) -- and training others to do this.

       Director of the PhotoTherapy Centre in Vancouver, Canada (which she founded in 1982 to serve as the world's primary networking base and extensive resource library for these fields), Judy also later founded the "Judy Weiser PhotoTherapy and Therapeutic Photography Educational Society" in order to further the educational purposes of the Centre and prepare its library resource holdings for formal archiving/digitizing and then eventual donation for public use.

       Judy has given over 300 Workshops, Training Intensives, and Lecture Presentations in over 50 cities world-wide* during the past three decades, teaching mental health professionals how to use PhotoTherapy, Photo Art Therapy, and VideoTherapy techniques to improve their therapy and counseling work with clients. She has also long taught non-therapists how to use Therapeutic Photography and Therapeutic Filmmaking techniques in related activities that can stimulate personal growth and insight, enhance well-being, reduce social exclusion, activate social change, strengthen communities -- and to assist with qualitative and community-based research. [*Some key examples appear below; to see the entire list of her teaching, training, and lecturing events click here.]

       Long considered the "world authority" on PhotoTherapy (and related) techniques, Judy was recently invited to become Adjunct Faculty in both the Counseling and Art Therapy/Counseling Masters Degree Programs of Southwestern College in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

       More recenly, she has begun offering her 6-day Professional Certificate Course: "Intensive Training in Judy Weiser's PhotoTherapy Techniques" through the PhotoTherapy Centre in Vancouver, Canada -- twice annually and hopes to also teach it also once a year in Itay (see "Training and Education" page for more about these, or contact her directly).

       In addition to the above, Judy is also on the Editorial Board for both the Italian Journal PsicoArt: Rivista on line di arte e psicologia (PsychoArt: Online Journal of Art and Psychology) and the Canadian Art Therapy Association Journal, and is an elected member of both the Canadian Academy of Independent Scholars and the American Family Therapy Academy.

       Judy also serves as International Consultant to the Center for Visual Therapies in the U.S., the Institute for Psychology and Photography ("ILPFOT") in Mexico, PSYPhoto/PSYForte in Russia, PhototherapyOrgUK in England, and VideoTherapyReport (of LaDamaSognatrice Produzioni Audiovisive) in Italy -- and has also been an occasional Instructor for both the Toronto Art Therapy Institute and the Vancouver Art Therapy Institute. Listed in the Canadian Register of Health Service Psychologists, she maintains professional license credentials in both Psychology and Art Therapy.

      Online, in addition to maintaining this Website, she manages the Facebook Group for "PhotoTherapy, Therapeutic Photography, Photo Art Therapy, and VideoTherapy" (currently over 1,000 members) -- and also the "Discussion Group About PhotoTherapy, Photo Art Therapy, Therapeutic Photography, VideoTherapy, and Related Fields" (postings from 17 countries thus far).

    In addition to teaching her own private Introductory or Full-Training workshops independently many times each year (for example, several times in Italy, Russia, Latvia, Finland, Sweden, Spain, Mexico, England, Scotland, USA, and Canada during the past few years), she has also been invited to present/teach at several major events; for example:

 • In 2008 she was the Invited "Opening Keynote" Plenary Speaker for the International Conference on PhotoTherapy and Therapeutic Photography in Finland (attended by people from over a dozen countries) -- and in the same year founded the "PhotoTherapy and Therapeutic Photography Focus Group" for the American Art Therapy Association

 • In 2009 she taught an Invited Full-day Workshop for the British Association of Art Therapists (London)

 • In 2010 she gave the "Invited Plenary Address" for the Russian Art Therapy Association Conference (Moscow) -- as well as the "Invited Keynote Address" for the Delaware Valley Art Therapy Association (Philadelphia)

 • In 2011 in addition to giving an Invited Presentation for the PhotoTherapy EU Conference (Finland), followed by an Invited 3-day Workshop for the Art Therapies Centre and Institute of Health in Riga (Latvia), she also gave an Invited full-day Workshop for the Family Therapy Training Institute of Florence (Italy)
    
-- and two months later, also gave an Invited Presentation and Workshop for the Conference "Le Trame dello Sguardo 2.0", at the Pontifical University Antonianum, as well as a 3-day Invited Workshop for the "Video, Photography, Theatre, and Artistic Mediation in the Helping Relationship" Masters Degree Program of the Philosophy Department of the Pontifical University Antonianum (both in Rome)

 • In 2012 she gave the Invited Opening Plenary Address to the PSYForte 2012 Russian PhotoTherapy Forum (Moscow) and will return later in the year to give an Invited 4-day Workshop there

 • In 2013 she will be the Keynote Speaker for Southwestern College's Transformation & Healing Conference in August, and will also deliver an Invited Plenary Address for the Mexican PhotoTherapy Conference in the Autumn

        Judy has also long shared her passion for PhotoTherapy by serving on many Thesis and Dissertation Committees both nationally and internationally -- as well as giving occasional lectures and mini-courses for a number of Postgraduate Training Programs in several countries.

        Judy continues to accept contracts to provide education and training in the use of PhotoTherapy, Photo Art Therapy, Therapeutic Photography, and VideoTherapy techniques in therapy, counseling, and related well-being and healing practices independently, as well as by contract for agencies, treatment programs, educational institutions, rehabilitation facilities, well-being programs, professional associations and organizations, hospitals, and so forth -- as well as privately-arranged individualized training -- and also enjoys sharing these techniques with the public and the media (Media inquiries, please click here).

      In addition to her classic book, PhotoTherapy Techniques: Exploring the Secrets of Personal Snapshots and Family Albums (third printing; second edition and now translated into both Italian (2013) and Korean (2012); links to publishers webpages are below), she has also written numerous professional journal articles and book chapters about PhotoTherapy (some of which have been translated into Japanese, Korean, Russian, Italian, and German), and also produced an educational video/DVD.
     She has also authored many professional book chapters, articles, and other publications about her secondary specialty of counseling disenfranchised people infected or affected by HIV/AIDS -- and was a member of the Speakers Bureau of the Canadian AIDS Society.
