CPS 590 - Introduction to Expressive Arts Therapy

Catalog Year 2009-2010

In this course students will develop an understanding of how various art forms can be used and combined in counseling. It is intended to provide students applied understanding of how art provides a framework to facilitate the connection with the self and others, identify and express feelings, support client’s strengths, develop resiliency, and foster change. Although students are not expected to demonstrate any exceptional talent or skill as an artist, they will be required to learn some simple art techniques that can be used with clients, and become familiar with a variety of strategies that could be applied to emergent opportunities for therapeutic intervention.
