Art Therapy minors learn to integrate the arts and art-making into the therapeutic relationship.
This course provides an introduction to the history, philosophy, and theory of art therapy. Students will learn about the creative process and visual expression as it relates to therapy. Readings, lectures, films, and experiential exercises will be utilized. No artistic ability or training is necessary.
This course builds on the student's knowledge of art therapy and the creative process by looking at the application of art therapy with different populations. Populations include different age groups, clinical diagnoses, and settings. Students will also learn about various approaches such as medical art therapy and community art therapy.
