Advanced drawing and talking
Who is the course for?
For all participants who attended the first “drawing and talking” training day and would welcome this advanced course which looks at the jungian principles and ideas that underpin this work in considerably more depth.
For those who have a special interest in understanding the theory which underpins the drawing and talking technique – counsellors, students, health professionals, anyone with a special interest in the creative art process and applying this to the therapeutic relationship.
Important: You will have need to have attended the foundation training day in order to directly use this approach with clients of any age. The foundation course will run again at CFC in the near future.
Aims of course - you will gain:
A clear understanding of the difference between different therapeutic ideas in the implementation of this work.
What to do if a child won’t draw, other creative alternatives that can adapt to the same principles.
An understanding of the use of assessment skills and the application of these to ensure these interventions are used appropriately.
The importance of protecting the therapeutic space from the point of view of jungian ideas.
- Carl Jung and his ideas and influences.
- Experiential work and opportunity to practise therapeutic skills needed to safely and successfully apply these techniques.
