Gary has been leading a number of art-based research projects at the London Art Therapy Centre. The use of naturally occurring, art-based evaluation and review processes have incorporated the ‘retrospective review’ and ‘audio image recording’ formats has emerged from this work in private practice. Current projects include therapist response-art and the reflect piece image, considering what they might bring to a visual arts research paradigm.
This one day workshop will look at how our subjective experiences of creativity, our own art-making and our personal experiences of symbolic healing, informs our practice and could underpin our inquiry into art therapy processes.
This art-based workshop is suitable to art therapists, supervisors and trainees working across clinical contexts and settings.
