“Art can permeate the very deepest part of us, where no words exist.”
― Eileen Miller
In this course, students will explore the profession and practice of art therapy and the educational pathways and career opportunities while experimenting with common materials used in clinical group and individual settings. They will learn how art-making can improve communication, enhance relationships, help resolve conflicts and build trust. Students will research different populations that can benefit from participating in art therapy, and they will review different art therapy assessment techniques used by clinicians in the field.
