Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts in Qatar (VCUarts Qatar), a Qatar Foundation partner university, is launching an online course called, “Foundation in Art Therapy.”
The course, the only one of its kind in the region, is designed to appeal to anyone who is considering Art Therapy as a career.
It will offer participants an opportunity to learn about the essence of Art Therapy and its implementation with different client groups and populations. The online course will take place from April 12 to 22.
The tutors, who are experienced local and international art psychotherapists, will be presenting clinical work from their own Art Therapy practices.
The course will be a combination of theory and practice, and will incorporate an experiential component with group discussions.
The course instructor is VCUarts Qatar alumna Sara Powell, the founder of Atic, a psychological and counselling center. She has an MA specialising in Art Psychotherapy from LaSalle College of the Arts, Singapore.
Powell is a registered member of the professional association for Creative Arts therapists in Australia, New Zealand and Asia. She has over nine years of clinical experience and has provided art therapy to children, adolescents, adults, families, and has facilitated a variety of groups.
“Foundation in Art Therapy” is a British Association of Art Therapy accredited course.
