Art is the meeting ground of the world inside and the world outside.
This two day experiential workshop introduces you to approaches and applications of art therapy for all ages. Creating new individual expression gives rise to new possibilities in oneself and the world. Art therapy has been used across time and cultures to give voice and form to that which has always been hard and important to express. Evidence shows art therapy can reduce symptoms of depression, aggression, anxiety and confusion. Current research is reporting positive outcomes for women with cancer, from relaxation and feeling expression to greater happiness and health.
This workshop will introduce you to theory, evidence and methods in art therapy and give you practical strategies to start working with individuals and groups in a safe and respectful manner. The focus of the workshop will be an experiential and practical introduction to a range of art therapy techniques using pencils, textas, pastels, charcoals, paint and clay. No skill or artistic experience is required for this hands-on workshop.
Psychologists, social workers, counsellors, case workers, community workers, psychotherapists, mental health and pastoral workers, other allied health professionals and students of these disciplines. No artistic skill or experience is required. Provisional psychologists can attend at student rates.
