The Principles of Art Therapy Certificate (formerly Art Therapy Certificate Foundation Course) is a validated 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 with clients of various ages (children, adolescents and adults) and in a range of contexts including e.g. Psychiatry, Probation, Palliative Care, Education, and Learning Disabilities. Topics may vary from year to year.
This is an exciting initiative between the Children’s Therapy Centre and CIT Crawford College of Art and Design.
