Art Therapy and Creative Expression

Art therapy is creative, and encourages those who suffer isolation because of their mental health or lifestyle choices, to dream of an alternative to their current situation. This is an introduction to how Art Therapy and other creative pursuits can be used in parallel to clinical practice to heal clients who have been diagnosed with PTS. This discussion explores how Art Therapy can be used to improve mental health and general wellbeing.

The original webinar took place 2 PM AEST Thursday, 22 August 2019
