I am thrilled to announce my partnership with Denver University to bring the first Expressive Arts Therapy Certificate to their programming.
Although this has not been formally listed on their page, my community is able to register prior to the course registration opening to the public!
Introduction to Creative Awakenings Expressive Arts Visual Journaling, 20 CEs
Wednesdays, September 28 – November 16, 2022, 10 am-12 pm MDT
Registration closes September 16, 2022
Using the universal language of the creative process, students will learn to use the Creative Awakenings visual journaling process to activate unconscious wisdom and self-knowledge using simple materials.
In a safe, nurturing, and experiential container, participants will learn the history and foundations of expressive arts and understand the Creative Awakenings International intermodal approach as a philosophy of both healing and giving voice to the “unknown.” The approach is based on the model of Carl Rogers, Person-Centered philosophy, and the creative expansion of his concept by his daughter Dr. Natalie Rogers.
The tradition of intermodal expressive arts uses movement, sound, visual arts, creative writing, and drama to foster self-expression, insight, creativity, and higher states of consciousness.
Whether you are looking to expand your career or looking to add the therapeutic arts into your life, educational practice, or organization, this introductory class will support your process.
Homework will involve a reading and a creative response. Zoom recordings as needed for missed content. Only one week missed. Weekly visual journaling assignments.
No artistic experience is needed or required. Please bring an open heART and mind.
