Course Code

Course Description

We have been running our highly successful Art Psychotherapy Foundation course for many years.

The general aim and intention of the 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.

Here 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 Psychotherapy 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 limited in size and facilitated by a qualified and experienced state-registered art therapist.

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.

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.

A programme of experiential workshops led by the course facilitators and seminars given by visiting Art Therapists from a wide range of fields. One full-day Induction (Saturday) and introductory workshop to begin the course to be held on October 22 2022, with weekly evening classes to follow; finishing with a full Plenary Day to close on March 18 2023.
