What you will learn

Therapeutic exercises

Impact of art therapy on PTSD

How a rubber duck can unlock emotions

Establishing whether a duck is your totem animal spirit

How painting reduces stress and anxiety

Details of a 'felt sense'


This course goes through some very straightforward Art Therapy exercises in a way that students are encouraged to follow along. The thoughts behind the exercises are explained, studies are referenced and examples are given.

The common 'tool' is the duck. Either rubber or painted.

We also look at the duck as a totem spirit - and other alternatives.

Do not worry if you cannot paint or have no experience!

This course is very carefully explained and the emphasis throughout is on process.

You will be shown plenty of poor art as well as art abstracts that go through the stages of mental health. The artist concerned has been co-opted to help answer questions on this course.

A heavy encouragement to participate; a huge encouragement to do the exercises - and a great willingness by me to encourage all to...listen...to ourselves.
