Art therapy & working with compulsive sexual behaviours
Francesca Hall, integrative arts psychotherapist, delivers the highly sought after workshop on using art therapy in working with clients and their partners struggling through the effects of compulsive sexual behaviours. Using a combination of case studies and hands on art tools, participants will gain greater confidence and competence and:
- Understand the principles of art therapy
- Experience art psychotherapy in a group setting
- Learn an integrative approach to compulsive sexual behaviours
- Understanding the attachment, shame and trauma in compulsive sexual behaviours
- Understand the theories applied to art therapy and compulsive sexual behaviours
- Experience the use of creativity in the therapy room.
Francesca has been in private practice for 20 years, in North West London. Francesca combines the application of the arts within a psychoanalytical framework. She devised the integrative arts course for the intermediate group for the Marylebone Centre. She has extensive experience working with both adults with addiction and children in care for Ealing social services, currently specialising in working with partners of people with sexual compulsion. This covers co-dependence, eating disorders, depression and trauma. Trained at the institute of arts in therapy and education, her previous decade as a professional actress helps in her work on understanding creative expression. Francesca brings focus to the importance of the connection between creativity and psychotherapy.
