The Certificate in Introduction to Art Therapy serves as an introduction to this specialised discipline.
Art Therapy is a human service profession that uses art media, images, art processes and client responses to the created products as reflections of development, abilities, personality, interests, concerns and conflicts.
The art therapy practice is based on human developmental and psychological theories for assessment and treatment, which include educational, psychodynamic, cognitive and other therapeutic means of reconciling emotional conflicts, fostering self-awareness, developing social skills, managing behaviour, solving problems, reducing anxiety, aiding reality orientation and increasing self-esteem.
Art therapy encourages self-expression to explore problems using a range of art materials, enabling positive change and personal growth. The intention is not a focus on the artistic skills but in engaging in a creative personal process. Art therapy treatment in children and youth focuses on art expression for self-exploration.
