Much of the information, case studies and examples in this course are nowhere else on the internet. So a lot of this work (but not all) is ORIGINAL. Where appropriate, published studies are references and websites linked to.
Another real strength of this course is the degree of participation in the Q/A section as people show how they really enjoy studying on this course, posting examples etc. Questions are quickly commented on and the overall ethos is to share and learn...and enjoy...

Introduction (in detail)
"This is a phenomenal instructor and the course is exceptional. The instructor has a very soothing voice which creates a very comfortable learning environment. The way the material is presented in this class is very refreshing, authentic and inspiring. Everything is clearly laid out. This has been one of my favorite classes I've taken on Udemy so far. I highly recommend this class to anybody who would like to learn more about mindful art therapy."
- Marie Pi
This is a course unique on Udemy.
Not because of content - many courses have'therapy' as part of the curriculum. What makes this course unique is the use of films and plays - in which the Instructor acts/writes/directs - that have been shown at festivals and/or performed in London UK, Poland, Czech Republic and at fringe festivals in the UK
By the use of theatre/film we explore the use of painting and art as a whole, in dealing with depression. BUT we also look at MANY examples of Art Therapy exercises. (170+)
Main topics covered:
Art therapy and the Solar System
Depression in Children
Beautiful painting (a film)
Art and mindfulness
Looking at art
Paintings submitted by children have been added to the film at the end, following our request for contributors
Numerous Art Therapy exercises
DBT - Distress Tolerance and Prayer
31 day challenge
The content is part anecdotal - using the Instructor's experience as a theatre director and actor in films - and part based on research. Published studies are referred to, in support of the points made.
So this is a course for those who are academically interested but also those who wish to try and experience how art therapy may be used to overcome depression.
Questions and discussion are encouraged. Comments on Educational Announcements are welcome...

I've only experienced a few minutes so far, but I agree, people ask the same question over and over. There's always one that keeps the class held up for one more question, that's already been answered.
I found that the lecturer was very much in awe of his own voice, way too much of him being an actor and not enough actual information about Art Therapy. I learned very little that I didn't know, but what I did learn I am grateful for. The best part of the course was when he wasn't speaking.
interesting, good to know that interaction is encouraged, looking forward to diving in, Great introduction.
I'm taking the course to continue healing and learning new tools to help me with my traumas as well as learn pass this knowledge on to others living with trauma.
Well it is early on but I think Chris is very good and personable and strong where he needs to be to get the ideas across as need.
I enjoyed this course as it was very relatable and the resources provided is something that can be used and implemented at any time.
The guy presenting is the most boring I have ever listened too. Plus I don't get what all that first part was about, it had nothing to do with art therapy.
The delivery is flat and I don't get the relevance of monopoly therapy. Looking forward to diving into the topics.
Not sure why the Monopoly game excerpt was added. Ready to just get on with the actual content of the courses!
Poor audio quality. I'm being represented with factoids when what I was hoping for was to learn how to lead art therapy sessions!
I feel like course is really very helpful to people who don’t know how to write, this can be a therapy where people themselves will feel free and interested in doing. It can also be helpful to understand a person more better with the help of art as many of them fail to express their problems or emotions verbally. Basically I myself am very curious to learn how art can help people come out of depression and other problems and looking forward to learn and grow alot with the help of this course
It does intrigue me to keep going, though I am not sure how in depth this is going to be. I also need to look around on how to access the additional materials.
Unable to make a conclusive decision about how relevant the spoof drama was in relation to art therapy but willing to stick with it and hoping all will become clear as the course progresses.
This course has been very interesting so far. There were some lectures that have been informative and will be taken into my own personal life. I really enjoy the workbooks that come with the lectures as they are also informative with articles linked to them. The activities are great because I can use them with my own students as well. I have used some actğivities that were mentioned before and I have had positive responses for them. I really enjoyed Section 8 about stress factors as it was informative. Chris has been very positive in answering questions or giving feedback on comments. Thank you.
I just started the course and I am very excited to be part of the program. This course will help me improve in my work and in my education and will help me to have more understanding about Art Therapy.
