This one-day workshop provides an accessible and engaging introduction to the study of Art Psychotherapy. Participants will gain an understanding of Art Psychotherapy and learn about the creative processes involved in this therapeutic modality. The day will be useful for those who are considering studying Art Psychotherapy at higher educational level and also those wanting to explore art making in a unique environment, enabling members to reflect on their motivations, skills and experiences.
Participants will be invited to engage in a range of art making practical sessions and group discussions exploring their own personal symbols and unconscious imagery in a safe and facilitating environment. Comfortable clothing should be worn suitable for making art in. A degree of active participation will be expected from all participants.
This day will provide direct experiential learning based on the principles which underpin art therapeutic practice, focusing on the ethos of the training taught on the Postgraduate MA course at the University of Roehampton. This workshop will explore the richness of human creativity and expression, making links to the group processes and art therapeutic relationship, shedding light on the non-verbal communication. A Certificate of attendance will be given at the end of the day.
