In the practice of person-centred art therapy skills, the person-centred apprach of Carl Rogers, and imaging in art form are brought together as complementary processes.

Working with images is a powerful medium. Images can tap into material from the subconscious, and help develop valuable insioghts leading to growth, self-awareness and integration.

This is an intensive experiential course that will develop your self-awareness and develop P-CAT skills to enable you to work professionally in a variety of settings.
