Arts Modalities in Therapy

This workshop introduces participants to working with various expressive modalities including play, drama, movement, music, voice, storytelling and sand-play. Participants are encouraged to consider their experiences engaging with these modalities and conceptualise how they may be used to explore and achieve therapeutic goals.

On completion of this workshop participants will have the ability to:

  1. demonstrate an understanding of various expressive modalities and their use in arts therapies;
  2. develop skills in articulating how engagement with expressive modalities may assist client/s in exploring and achieving therapeutic goals;
  3. critically analyse the contexts of arts psychotherapists’ work and the uses of various modalities to support change and to meet diverse needs;
  4. critically reflect upon lived experience of various modalities and how an understanding of these modalities may inform practice.
