Dyadic Parent-Child Art Psychotherapy Training Level 1 - Online Delivery

This course is for qualified Art Therapists or other qualified creative therapists only. Dyadic Parent-Child Art Psychotherapy is a way of working which focuses directly on the child’s primary attachment relationship. The therapist does not become the child’s therapist or the caregiver’s therapist but the relationship’s therapist. The aim of this two day course is practical: to give art therapists what they need to feel confident and competent to work in this way.
