Imagery in Health and Healing: An Introduction to the Arts as Therapy
A dynamic introduction to the arts in healing beginning with their ancient historical and biological roots in multicultural ritual and ending with current psychological theories and practices. Primary attention will be given to ecological and depth psychology perspectives. Hands-on work in art media will be used consistently throughout the course to deepen our understanding of the various perspectives presented.


Participants will learn…

The underlying structures that influence the communicative and healing capacity of the arts.
How to recognize and develop their unique visual language
How to effectively look at and discuss imagery in a health-based way. For museum educators this will include VTS (visual thinking systems).
