What do I gain from the course?

The course also provides an invaluable opportunity for enhancing creative and personal insight, exploration and growth, self-reflection as well as learning through group interaction.

NO art skill is necessary in order to benefit from the course.
Everyone has the ability to be creative through art! The importance in Art Therapy is on the creative PROCESS and not only the aesthetic product. There are also no judgements made on the artwork.

Course Info:
The Art Therapy 5-day course is comprised of the following modules daily:
1: Art Therapy theory and Psychodynamic literature
2: Case studies examples with children, adults, autism, psychosis and more
3: Experiential art making and Journaling

Art Therapy in groups is a highly effective, powerful and dynamic process. Working within a group format encourages the learning of new and inspiring creative uses of various mediums as a means of expression. Interaction with other group members provides an opportunity for sharing of feedback and insights around the image making process thereby enhancing the learning experience.
Although the facilitating Art Therapist follows a Psychodynamic approach, an eclectic tool kit is used when appropriate and includes a combination of Art Therapy interventions, coaching, archetypes and numerology.
The course is extremely beneficial for both personal and professional growth.

Duration of Course:
5 consecutive days (excl weekend)
Please note that the course does not enable you to practice as an Art Therapist as Art Therapy is a 2-year full-time Masters training internationally.
