Facilitating Art Therapy in Situations of Conflict and Social Upheaval

This course is open to all who wish to attend. Since 2015, the world has witnessed an unprecedented movement of people into Europe fleeing contexts of war, persecution, social upheaval and poverty from the Middle East, Asia and Africa. There is growing interest in the need for appropriate interventions to support people on a psychological level and the skills of Art Therapists are beginning to be recognised as relevant and needed within this context.
