Creating and being with art the person centred way
Person-centred art therapy is a non-directive way of working creatively with clients. This course is for those who wish to add more creative ways of working to their therapeutic ‘tool bag’. A qualification in art is not required.
The course brings together my two passions - listening in a person-centred way with people whilst offering the opportunity for clients to use their creative resources. I personally have, and have witnessed clients have a new dynamic in their lives for the ability to understand meaning in their art - a powerful seeing and understanding brings a living and transforming dynamic for counselling and psychotherapy.
Purpose of the course:
- To bring the person-centred approach of Carl Rogers together with using art in therapy.
- To take this learning back to client work.
- To raise self-awareness - personal and professional development.
- To learn to work safely with art in a listening environment.
The model can be used one to one, in couples and in groups.
The course lasts 100 hours - 22 evenings sandwiched by two 2 weekends. Weekends are held on Friday evening 7pm to 9pm, Saturday 10am to 8pm and Sunday 10am to 4.30pm.
The course is heavily influenced by Liesl Silverstone's PCATS model.
