Art therapy is used across a variety of ages and populations and has grown in popularity as we come to understand the impact of art on the brain. This is your chance to learn how art therapy works and why. You do not have to be an artist to use art in your counselling practice. It is effective with clients who have no background in art as well as those who do.
This program is not intended to certify you as an art therapist but will give you basic tools to enhance your psychotherapy and counselling sessions by offering a new avenue to assist your clients in expressing themselves. You will learn to do assessments, use art as a therapeutic journey, and will learn to develop your own art techniques that are appropriate for your individual clients or for groups.
