Metaphor, Image and Play: Incorporating Creativity in Therapeutic Practice
With Lucy Johnson HCPC Reg
on Sunday 3rd March 2019
Information about the Training and day content
Creative therapy refers to a variation of techniques that are expressive and creative in nature. The aim of creative therapies is to assist clients to find a form of expression beyond words or traditional talking therapies.
Therapists do not need to be good at art to be able to incorporate creativity into their practice, all that is required is the right tools and a willingness to engage with clients in creative ways. Everyone has the potential to be creative whether its through art or other mediums. Metaphors, imagery, sounds, smells and textures can all be powerful ways to gain new insights, understand emotions and bring depth to the therapeutic work.
This workshop aims to provide a fantastic opportunity for therapists to learn how to incorporate play and creativity into their practice. The day will be interactive utilising a range of creative expressions such as hot seating, embodiment, writing, drawing and play in general.
