Overview

This introductory course traces the history of “art as a healing agent”, introducing the key concepts of art therapy and defining its field of action. The historical debate about “process” (art as therapy) versus “product” (art in therapy) in the evolution of this practice will be discussed. A brief theoretical introduction will be followed by experiential and practical work. This course is recommended for students who want to experiment with art as a powerful tool in self‐knowledge and personal growth and for students who want to explore the possibilities of art therapy as a profession.
