Art Therapy - "How To Use Art Therapy With Others" has been created for people who are interested in therapeutic art and the creative process, either for self exploration and healing, or for the purpose of working with other people to help support them in a therapeutic setting.

The therapeutic, creative process of self expression through art, can improve our physical and mental health, as well as our emotional well being.

  • It helps us to manage our feelings in a more positive way

The course curriculum covers a range of topics. We’ll be looking at how to use various art therapy techniques in a range of settings, This includes painting, drawing as well as using music, dance and even drama as a therapeutic tool enabling you to bring healing and harmony to both yourself and to your clients.
