Creative Interventions for Mental Health Professionals: Expressive Arts

Enjoy this 6 CEU course!

You have 60 days to complete this course.

Expressive arts therapy is an approach to psychotherapy with roots in indigenous cultures and a rich history of evolution within modalities such as Jungian, person-centered, and Gestalt psychotherapies. Defined by its emphasis on the multi-modal process of healing (exploring many combinations for creativity rather than relying on just one art form), the strategies of expressive arts psychotherapy can prove useful to trauma therapists practicing in a variety of modalities.

In this dynamic, self-paced course, participants are oriented to the fundamentals of expressive arts therapy history and approach. Participants will develop an enhanced respect for how to foster client creativity in working with these concepts and their clinical intricacies.

Learning Objectives:

1. Explore the objectives and applications of expressive arts therapies.
2. Understand expressive arts as an integral part of the healing process.
3. Experience an intermodal approach to expressive arts using movement,
visual arts, music, humor, poetry, and story telling.
4. Become familiar with resources in the area of expressive arts therapies.
5. Demonstrate understanding and use of appropriate therapeutic responses to
creative work.
6. Explore art making through arts-based research
