Creative arts therapy - for Mental Health Awareness Week
Being creative is good for us. Creativity involves imagination. It involves perceiving in new ways, solving problems, and developing ideas.
Simply engaging in creative arts can help with anxiety, stress and depression as well as helping us to process feelings, adapt to challenges, and promote a deeper authentic connection to ourselves.
Creating art in itself is good for our well-being, but when we use creative methods therapeutically, we can harness a powerfully transformative and healing process. Come along to this workshop and find out more about a person-centred approach to creative arts therapy, and engage in a therapeutic creative experiential during the workshop and experience it for yourself.
This workshop is provided in support of Mental Health Awareness Week. Please have a selection of simple art materials to hand, or alternatively, you can use a digital art app. Come along and have a go!
Tickets are free and you can book your place via the APCCA website.
