Course Details

Introduction

The general aim and intention of this course is to provide a broad outline and introduction to the subject of Art Psychotherapy. In particular to reflect the Jungian Analytical model as taught here at Roehampton.

The course itself is highly 'experiential' in nature. However, we stress that it is not intended to provide 'therapy' as such to the participants.

At Roehampton we consider that Art Psychotherapy is one of the 'Psychological Therapies' and that other Psychological Therapies include disciplines such as Counselling, Psychology and Psychotherapy.

We consider that Art Therapy is a specialised form of Psychotherapy and that it is largely underpinned by Psychoanalytical theories. Our Foundation Course is largely underpinned and informed by theories and models from Jungian 'Analytical Psychology'.

These workshops will be facilitated by a qualified and experienced state-registered art therapist.

Course Structure

A programme of experiential workshops will be delivered by an experienced Art Therapist. One full-day Induction (Saturday) and introductory workshop to begin the course to be held in October 2022 with weekly evening classes to follow; finishing with a full Plenary Day to close in March 2023.

Intended Audience

Participants come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences including individuals wishing to prepare to apply for a qualifying Masters programme in Art Psychotherapy. Others complete the course as CPD and yet others are simply curious to learn about the topic.

Outcomes/What you will learn

You will need to attend a minimum of 70% of the course and the assessment process in order to receive an electronic attendance certificate.

We stress that completion of the Art Psychotherapy Foundation Course does not imply that you can practice Art Psychotherapy nor does successful completion of the Foundation Course guarantee a place on the qualifying Masters degree.
