The Principles of Art Therapy Certificate (formerly Art Therapy Certificate Foundation Course) is a QQI level 8 (10 credit) course. This course provides an opportunity to explore Art Therapy within a group setting. During each course weekend (Friday night and all day Saturday) students will participate in experiential workshops with qualified arts therapists. A variety of approaches to the process of Art Therapy are introduced through workshops, lectures and seminars. Each weekend is themed around a key principle of the art therapy process. Lectures will explore how the process works in a range of contexts, and with clients of various ages, from Psychiatry, Probation, Palliative Care, Education, to Learning Disabilities. Topics vary from year to year.
This is an initiative between the Children’s Therapy Centre and CIT Crawford College of Art and Design.
