The aim of this course is for you to feel free and confident integrating artwork into your practice through experiential training.

Course outline:

• Stress management: How creative techniques such as using mandalas can be excellent tools for stress management.
• Self-care: a reminder about the importance of making time for ourselves; gaining skills in helping clients to relax.
• Theoretical concepts behind the benefits of creative techniques.
• Managing emotions: How artwork can be used as a means of managing emotions; as an aid for our clients to access their emotional world.
• To facilitate clients’ – and our own – personal development and self-awareness through visual means and the use of metaphor; increasing sense of self and identity.
• To experience how powerful artmaking can be as a means of expression and communication.

Experiential exercises are integrated with theoretical learning. No artistic ability is necessary and all art materials are provided.
