Expressive Arts Gestalt Therapy
This workshop exposes the participants with Six Gestalt Therapy Principles applied to Arts Therapy: Holism, Awareness, Here &Now, Figure & Ground, Pragnanz and Polarities.
Each of these principles is applied into Arts Therapy. The activation and revival of Art Objects, created by the client in arts therapy, promote a therapeutic process and bring about new visioning for repeated issues. In this workshop the participants witness the frequent miracle that happens when the Art speaks for itself from the unconscious mouth of its creator!. Based on the Haiku Principle of ancient Japanese poetry, following the Martin Buber idea of Me-Thou and forth to the Here and Now Principe of Gestalt, the client becomes his own creation and speaks from within. This workshop is very demonstrative and applicable.
