From the organizer:

Creative Arts Therapy – is a collaborative supportive partnership between therapist and client, in engaging and supporting acts of creativity and reflection that foster healing, growth and resilience. The creative arts therapist uses themselves as an instrument and tool of practice and so also engages in a life long learning through reflection, creative processes, self care and supervision. The theoretical basis is informed by integrative theory, person centred psycho-dynamic therapy, relational and systemic approaches, and multi-modal use of the creative arts.

Creativity philosophy: everyone is creative, to be creative is to be human. Creativity naturally promotes and supports resilience, health and healing.

– An overview of the process of professional training in Creative Arts Therapy practice and time for Q and A

‘Love is the capacity to take care, to protect, to nourish. If you are not capable of generating that kind of energy toward yourself — if you are not capable of taking care of yourself, of nourishing yourself, of protecting yourself — it is very difficult to take care of another person.’ – Thích Nhất Hạnh (2004)

Who is it for?
For psychology professionals, social workers, teachers, artists and those interested in personal development
(Please note: no previous experience in art or creative processes is required, just a willingness to bring an open heart and mind)
