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.
Our summer school is run each year to offer individuals the opportunity to learn and experience some of the theory and practical elements of client-centred Play Therapy. Participants who attend will be able to use their learning to enhance both their understanding of children’s emotional and behavioural development and their skills in working with children who experience difficulties.
