Tuesdays 6:30pm – 8:30pm
Art Psychotherapy Group with Sally Skaife
This ongoing, weekly, on-line art psychotherapy group works with the following
principles: through the manipulation of art materials and play with them, we can find our feelings, gather our thoughts and communicate to others in the group. This may be through the artwork or through words. As this is happening, the group is building trust so that more and more can be shared in it through both art making and talking. Group members will seek to understand each other, which may not be easy due to varying life circumstances in the present and the past. Relations outside the group will inevitably influence relationships within the group enabling them to be explored.
The group will be suitable for those suffering from depression, anxiety, past abuse, trauma or loss, problems with food and relationship problems. It will also be suitable for those wanting to explore the impacts of racism, patriarchy, class and other forms of oppression, and as personal therapy for art therapy trainees.
The group is held in English but as it is online, is available for those around the world. No prior experience in art making is needed but a private space for Zoom and art materials of your choice are needed.
Sally Skaife has been running art therapy groups with adults for many years. She has an MA in Art Psychotherapy, a Diploma in Group Analysis and a Doctorate in Psychotherapy. She has considerable experience in the supervision of art therapy and of art therapy education. She has written extensively on art therapy groups.
