Expressive Art Therapy

Women’s Christian College (WCC), Chennai, and East West Center for Counselling and Training are jointly offering a diploma course in Expressive Art Therapy, open for both men and women.

It is an intensive programme designed for therapists, social workers, counsellors, psychologists, and those working with children.

Expressive Arts Therapy is the practice of using storytelling, singing, instrumental music, movement and dance, drama, and visual arts, all together, in an integrated way, to foster human growth, development, and healing.

It is an inter-modal therapeutic discipline in which the therapist and the client use the art forms for better understanding of the situation in question.

It can be practised with individuals, couples, families, and groups. The training will be in three modules, each lasting 10 days.

Participants will complete 150 hours of class work in Chennai, and 75 hours of practical work as assignments and a final project in their respective organisation.

Trainers are experienced therapists from Canada, U.S.A, Australia and India. They will handle subjects such as psychodrama, playback theatre, storytelling, music therapy and counselling skills and ethics. The course fee is Rs. 75,000. For details, contact 044 - 4208 0810 or 98841 00135.
