Children and Young People Interrupted - Unfinished business in art therapy during COVID-19
This seminar will revisit the pillars of safe working, safeguarding, information sharing, the unique role of image making and non-verbal disclosure within art therapy and will end with participants making a personal visual response to identify, resolve and transform unfinished business.
To take part in the course you need to register with the British Association of Art Therapists by clicking here.
Pre-course exercise - (45-60 minutes)
Take some time to think about a child or young person that you were engaged with or about to start work with before the lockdown.
Take 45 to 60 minutes to make an image of the unfinished elements, feelings and concerns that you have been left holding from this child. The image can be any size, any materials, 2D or 3D to express the title 'unfinished business'.
Please bring your work entitled 'unfinished business'” to the online seminar. Please also have some art materials at the ready for an experiential exercise within the seminar.
