Expressive arts therapy supervision is a relational and arts-based dialogue to support a reflective, cooperative facilitation process to provide ethical and professional guidance with the goals of developing and strengthening sound expressive arts therapy practices.
We will, over 4 months, explore the foundational practices of using the expressive arts in therapy, singular arts compared to intermodal, or superimposition using the arts, in and as therapy, explore the architecture of a session, transference and countertransference issues, ethical dilemmas, case studies, and most importantly, questions that you have both individually and as a group. How do we bring the arts online, and issues stemming from our work and lives will also be explored.
Using the arts as a point of inquiry, we will use the arts as well as dialogue to explore our questions and aesthetic responses to the material.
While supervision is not therapy, we will be exploring how our personal selves enter the work. It is encouraged for you to have outside support if needed.
