Summerschool Memories: Sergio & Creative Psychotherapy ’16

12.05.2017 14:37:59

I participated in the Creative Psychotherapy course in July 2016 at TLÜ. The course had a good duration of 2 weeks in which the topic was presented mainly through experimentation and activities.

I chose this course because I believed it was going to complement my current studies in Psychology. The subject was very interesting as it took a different approach and focused more in experimenting through the expression in art and body movement compared to the conventional therapy.

Coming from an academic enviroment where cognitive/conductive psychology are taught mainly, creative psychotherapy felt to me like a fresh approach that opened another way of communicating through paintings, drawings, music and movement.

I found myself thinking out of the box and sharing with the other students past experiences of my life through all the activities. This created a bonding enviroment that allowed me to understand how other cultures express emotions.

Our teachers were experienced professionals and made possible through several excercises that a class full of different nationalities and backgrounds had fun and collaborate with each other. They also gave us a lot of bibliography to check and showed us real cases in which creative psychotherapy could be applied and its results.

I would recommend this course to anyone interested in art, creative expression and psychology in general.

    Eesti: Obnoxiously fabulous, or something like that!

    Student blog

    I would not say that I’m the common type of student. My name is Valentin Châtelet, and as every regular fresh French young adult who used to live in the suburbs of Paris during their childhood, I went to study in the capital city when I turned 18. Yet all relevant comparison with my French peers ends at the very moment I became an undergraduate student in Estonian language in 2015.
