Our Summer School this year provides participants with the opportunity to experience a ‘taster session’ of 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 Therapy summer school provides participants with an opportunity to engage in a deeper and more intensive exploration of the art therapeutic process in 5 consecutive days. Participants will be invited to engage in a range of art making process to explore their own personal symbols and unconscious imagery in a safe and playful environment. Notions of shared or collective experience will also be explored along with how Jungian theory may inform the art therapeutic triangular relationship.
