About this course

Following a successful 6-week pilot of an Environmental Art Therapy (EAT) Group, Diane Eagles and Cady Stone are facilitating a 2.5 hour online reflective and inspirational workshop to help arts psychotherapy practitioners from all modalities think about greening their clinical practice. This workshop will help practitioners consider how to bring the outside in or work outside. It will be an opportunity to learn about the theory and practice of environmental or green arts therapy, share practice, and consider setting up a forum for future sharing and support. Participants are invited to bring along a natural ‘object’ to work with and share with the group. This online event is only open to CNWL Arts Psychotherapy staff, honoraries and trainees on placement.
