As therapists we derive enormous satisfaction from the creativity of our work with patients and in enabling the development of their creativity. However, particularly when we are faced with complex institutional pressures, we may lose sight of other forms of creative expression which we need to sustain us.
Through artwork and discussion we will reflect on how we can restore our connection to the vibrancy of our creative capacities for our own individual development and well-being.
This workshop is for art therapists, trainees, psychotherapists and counsellors
