Our Summer School this year provides participants with the opportunity to experience a ‘taster session’ off all the disciplines including Art Psychotherapy, Dramatherapy, Dance Movement Psychotherapy, Music Therapy and Play Therapy, as well as having an intensive 5 session experiential class within their chosen specialization. In addition we provide optional early evening sessions comprising of case studies and theory seminars. Our Summer School provides direct experiential learning about the Arts & Play Therapies MA Art  Programmes at the University of Roehampton. It is therefore of interest to anyone wishing to find out more about training in one of these disciplines as well as individuals wanting to explore their creativity in a unique environment. In addition this Summer School may be of interest to mental health professionals, teachers and social workers etc. interested in learning more about these unique and creative forms of therapy. A degree of active participation will be expected from all participants who should therefore be prepared for a degree of personal disclosure, sharing and exploration.

The Art Psychoherapy summer school provides participants with an opportunity to engage in a deep and intensive exploration of the art therapeutic process over 5 consecutive days of experiential work. Participants will be invited to engage in a range of art making processes to explore their own personal symbols and unconscious imagery in a safe and creatively facilitating environment. Notions of shared or collective experience will be explored along with how Jungian theory may inform art making and the art therapeutic relationship.
Links will be made to theory and clinical practice and insight derived from the workshop will heighten participants’ understanding and sensitivity to non-verbal communication. This Summer School provides direct experiential learning about art psychotherapy and the ethos of the training on the MA Art Psychotherapy Programme at the University of Roehampton. It is therefore of interest to anyone wishing to find out more about training as an art therapist as well as artists wanting to explore art making in a unique environment and through a Jungian perspective. In addition this Summer School may be of interest to other mental health professionals, teachers and social workers etc. interested in learning more about this unique and creative form of therapy. Participants should wear clothes that they are comfortable to make art in. A degree of active participation will be expected from all participants who should therefore be prepared for a degree of personal disclosure, sharing and exploration.
