Time: 10.00 – 4.00pm

During this arts & theory based workshop we will consider the visual and imaginative processes that generate signs, symbols, metaphor and motif for ourselves as art therapists and for the clients we work with – drawing on clinical examples as well as personal, visual material.

We will look at the theoretical context with reference to Peirce’s ideas of signs and their significance;  Freud’s ‘Interpretation of Dreams’ and Jung’s ‘Man and his Symbols’ as we examine how visual and symbolic narratives have been considered in the art therapy literature.
