CPD Workshops & Courses

CPD Workshops & Courses 2017-07-21T12:37:07+00:00

We provide a creative space for innovative approaches, imaginative thinking and reflective practice in art therapy. These events are aimed at arts and creative therapists who work across disciplines and work settings. Most of the courses are one day events though we also have a weekend training in sandplay and two longer ongoing courses. Gary Nash is the training co-ordinator and welcomes any enquiries regarding participation or future trainings.

Some events may be for a specific audience but when possible they will be open to: qualified therapists, trainees, related health and education professionals, carers, service users and interested members of the public. All courses are CPD certificated.

You can book and pay for all courses online via paypal. You will be taken through the process and can check availability of remaining places on the courses.

Call the Centre to process your booking or answer any questions. Alternatively, please email Gary on trainings@nullarttherapycentre.com.
