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,journey therapy tools, 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 only available internationally.
