At the deepest level, the creative process and the healing process arise from a single source.
Explore and experience the healing benefits of supported grief work through art in this one day course.
Experiencing a significant loss or change, throws the world into chaos and confusion. At these times, people are challenged to re-define and re-negotiate much and often have trouble putting feelings into words.
In this one day workshop you will gain an overview of current models and theories of loss and grief. We will consider an overview of art therapy and evidence for how art has helped thousands of people work through their losses. You will be encouraged to apply and experience some of the expressions of art therapy throughout the workshop and be able to discern its healing benefits first hand. Current loss and grief theories will be considered and applied through painting and collage exercises.
Psychologists, social workers, counsellors, bereavement counsellors, case workers, psychotherapists, pastoral workers, other allied health professionals and students of these disciplines. No artistic experience or skill is necessary. Provisional psychologists can attend at student rates.
Beate brings over 30 years of experience of training and social work specialising in grief and loss education/counselling, transition counselling and applied mindfulness. She knows the personal and professional benefits of creative therapy practices that she skilfully shares.

The training workshop was..
√... Excellent! Beate was a wonderful presenter in every way. In just two days she facilitated the creation of a real peer support space (where participants were previously unmet.)
√... Very well organised. Beate is a very passionate and generous teacher. Great warmth.
√... really enjoyable. I most valued the examples of grief given, the video and the presenter's own story.
√...both informative and process orientated. I enjoyed it with two hats on - professional and personal. I really enjoyed the style of teaching - real and authentic.
√...honest, discussion, resource and process rich. I now understand how to help my clients.
√... an excellet presentation. The content was very helpful with practical information and skills focus. Most of my colleagues would be interested in this training.
√....most valuable for me in focussing on art as a way of working with grief and loss - a helpful tool to add to my skills.
√...excellent! I think it has been well prepared and thought through - thank you so much.
√...was fantastic overall. Learning about theories/frameworks for grief and loss, learning simple creative processes to use with clients and doing my own experiential learning process was most valuable.
√...Beate is incredibly knowledgable on the subject and delivery was sensitive and real and clear.
√... So much material for myself as a professional and so validating personally.
