Weaving art processes into clinical and counseling work greatly expands the capacity to articulate–with fullness and specificity–what lies buried within us, by using each modality as it is called for in the unfolding process. As both therapist and client work with these healing multi-arts processes, the creative spirit is aroused and the therapeutic process itself is experienced as art. ~ Kate Donohue

Dream Weaver: A Jungian Approach to Symbol and Expressive Arts Therapy November 8-9 | 2014
A kinship naturally exists between expressive arts therapy and Jungian Psychology. Both are image-based approaches to understanding and healing the psyche and each
emphasizes the symbolic process in its own unique fashion. This course weaves together the theory and practice of both these approaches into a Jungian-oriented expressive arts healing tapestry of images, emotions, understanding and transformation. The class explores the basic concepts of Jungian psychology and compares and contrasts them to expressive arts theory.
Urban Shaman: Exploring the Indigenous Roots of Expressive Arts Therapy February 21-22 | 2015
Through honoring indigenous roots, expressive arts therapy strives to bring the healing power of the arts back into therapy education, consultation and social justice work. In this course, we will explore the roots of expressive arts therapy by researching and experiencing cultural arts-based rituals and discovering how they could be used for modern-day healing.
