The Cork Art Therapy Summer School welcomes up to sixty participants annually, providing them with a unique opportunity to learn about and experience the Art Therapy process. Visiting art therapists, from Ireland and further afield, facilitate an immersive experience of the Art Therapy process over the five days.
Participants are offered the chance to explore the therapeutic potential of art through a series of themed experiential workshops. A series of related lectures and seminars during the week provide a context for the current practice of art therapy. Participants have the option (if they meet the academic requirements) to register and take this course as a Level 9, 5-credit module. For some this summer school may be the first step on the road to a career in Art Therapy. For others, it may be an opportunity to re-engage with their creative identity. For trainee and qualified therapists, it may provide continuing professional development
