Transformative Arts Therapy online Diploma course
Art and Music as Therapy Diploma course
If you believe in the power of the creative Arts and Music to transform lives, this Transformative Therapy distance learning Diploma will offer you a means of exploring this expressive therapy yourself and developing it into a creative and caring career.
The Transformative Therapy using art and music as therapy course created by Suzy Chiazzari, is suitable for those who wish to work in a complementary health field using art and music to accelerate self-growth and inner healing. It will also be useful to anyone who wishes to develop their own self-knowledge and creative abilities. You do not have to have any previous training in either art or music as Transformative Therapy teaches you different techniques of using sound, shape, form and colour to promote a healing process that promotes expansive emotional healing and spiritual growth.
Creative Arts Therapy links the energy of colour and sound to create a bridge between the visible world of the physical body, it’s emotional states and the invisible spiritual realms, thus promoting a state of wholeness and connection. This course uses transformative imagery through guided visualisations and music to stimulate the imagination for healing, change and growth. Using transformative imagery sets up new pathways in the brain that can improve chronic pain, mental and physical health.
As a Transformative therapist you act as a facilitator of empowering creative acts. The harmonising forces of colour and sound, promotes conscious merging with the primal energy of life, or as Carl Jung describes it, ‘the collective unconsciousness’. In this course we use creative artwork and music to further his idea that the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being. The course also introduces the work of Rudolph Steiner and Alfred Tomatis.
No previous qualifications in art or music are required, only an interest in art and music as therapy and a with a desire to work in a creative and caring environment.
