About this Unit
In Spring 2017 this unit replaced by 102527 - Integrating Arts and Therapy. This unit introduces art therapy students to an understanding of psychotherapy theory through the lens of contemporary art and the translation of foundational psychotherapy knowledge and skills into art therapy practice. This unit builds on the micro skills of counselling and psychotherapy learned in Foundations of Psychotherapy and Counselling 1, through the scaffolded introduction and practice of art therapy clinical skills during intensive group work supported by staff. The unit also offers an opportunity for students to demonstrate their emerging understandings of art therapy by producing an artwork on a chosen aspect of the relationship between art and psychotherapy.
