Whether you're a beginner to the subject or already using art therapy techniques as part of your practice, this course is the perfect choice for learning how to use art in a therapeutic setting.
You can also use the course as a self-application model as it is excellent for exploring therapeutic art for self-development, discovery and self-healing.
On completion of the course, students will receive three professional certificates. These include a fully accredited diploma, full accreditation with the CPD Standards Agency and the addition of 10 hours of credit.
Here’s just some of the things the course can help with:
As well as counsellors and health professionals, art therapy techniques are now being used by many different individuals in a variety of settings, including support workers, teachers, youth leaders and parents.
Being able to facilitate art in this way means that a great many more people can benefit from the creative journey and is currently being embraced across schools, prisons, hospitals and rehabilitation centres.
This course will allow you to develop and nurture your skills, as you learn how to assist others in the healing process.
Discover how to manage emotions and feelings in a positive way, while facilitating profound positive change in both you and your clients. The course will help you grow as a person and as a professional, building on your confidence and self-esteem.
We'll be looking at how you can use specific exercises and tools to help others address unresolved issues, emotional challenges, and gain autonomy.
The course covers specific areas dealing with managing loss, trauma, bereavement and illness. We'll even be looking at how you can use these methods when working with children.
The syllabus is both varied and comprehensive and includes the input of real life students and their own experiences of using art while helping others to heal.
All you need is an internet connection to get started. In terms of art supplies, we recommend basic materials such as paper, pencils and pens etc. It isn’t necessary to invest in expensive equipment to get full benefit from the course.
