Experiential workshop in Art Therapy GAT
The workshop of the experiential group is one of the main pillars of the Art Therapy formation in Barcelona. It consists of one small group of students who work in different artistic aspects of this experience. One part of the session is used to create artistic objects and another to generate a dialogue around these creations. With guidance from our art therapists, participants will slowly discover the different concepts, that form the theory of art therapy. The methodology of the work is extensively documented in the specific bibliography and aims to acquire the notions of the group’s dynamic in the group where they create artistic works. The experiential groups are similar to therapy groups, therefore, it is an ideal way to learn some of the elements that characterize this profession in an experiential way. This type of workshop is especially designed for people who are conducting art workshops for people with some type of difficulty or are professionally dedicated to art therapy. During the sessions, there will be a debate about the artistic works of the members.

Sally Thomson, Chicago, US
“… Before Metàfora I had trained in clinical psychology. I was longing to connect to my creative side and also curious about Metàfora’s reputation as a school of reference within Art therapy. This course gave me access to both sides and I loved every moment of my stay there…”
