Introductory Course

Introductory Art Therapy CertificateThe introduction workshops are an enriching experience for people who work or would like to work with children, adolescents or adults and who wish to enhance their therapeutic practice through art. This also gives participants a chance to decide if they wish to enrol in the full year training program consisting of 10 weekends over two semesters.

On both days participants will create an artwork and be introduced step by step to the concepts involved in art therapy. Saturday has an emphasis on realistic work such as things we can see in our environment, while Sunday focuses on abstract pictures. Both days also provide an overview of the practical application of the concepts to the workplace. Pre-reading will be emailed to registrants.

One Year Certificate Training Program

This intensive art therapy training course offers students, in a group of about 8-16 people, an extensive opportunity to experience and learn a range of verbal and nonverbal art therapy approaches, as well as therapeutic interventions used in different educational and clinical settings. The focus will be the work with unconscious processes and how they can be utilised in combination with evidence-based practices. Participants can expect to be exposed to experiences that may stimulate their emotions and offer opportunities for self-disclosure.

The spiritual component of the training focuses on mindfulness, inner peace and compassion. Accessing the individual’s inner wisdom and creative intelligence are core goals of the teaching.
