Tickets: £45+ booking fees
Art is a powerful medium that promotes self-expression, creativity, and mental health. Simply engaging in creative arts has been shown to help reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. When the person-centred approach is brought together with the use of art in therapy, it becomes a powerful and yet gentle approach which can help clients to process experiences and feelings and can promote a deeper authentic connection.
This experiential workshop will:
• Describe a person-centred approach to creative arts
• Highlight the importance of non-directivity in avoiding harm when working with creative arts
• Share real-life case examples to illustrate this amazing approach.
Participants will :
• Have the opportunity to engage in an experiential reflective arts-based exercise
• Take away a simple but powerful creative arts exercise that you can use with clients online or face-to-face.
Art skills are not required, but please bring some basic art materials (paper, pencils, pastels, paints) if possible, or alternatively you can use a digital art app.
This workshop is suitable for suitable for counsellors and other helping professionals such as care coordinators, keyworkers, social workers, support workers and nurses
