Training

We start from September 2021

A 3-year qualification course with certificate for those who:

  • Want to become an Evolutionary Art Therapist
  • Want to integrate Evolutionary Art Therapy with its innovative and evolving approach into their own professional practice (animators, pedagogues, teachers, psychologists, therapists and health professionals …)
  • Wish to work on their inner development: a realization process of your qualities and potential.
  • Dare to create in order to become the creator of his/her own existence
  • Wish to develop his/her intuition, empathy and imagination

In Evolutionary Art Therapy® the encounter between the conscious and the unconscious is of fundamental importance.That is why you learn to discover and understand the message of the drawing, text, modelling through the analogy of symbolism. Thus, as a future Evolutionary Art Therapist, you will learn to guide the person in the exploration of his psyche, the discovery of his inner sources and his potential. By learning how to transform a drawing or artwork (cutting, pasting, modelling, burning) and after the symbolic analysis, the person you are guiding sends a message of resilience and fulfilment to his psyche. In this way one stimulates the meeting of the inner Self or the Soul, the true identity. The Evolutionary Art Therapy® unifies the knowledge of Humanistic, Transpersonal Psychology, Symbolism, Art and Contemporary Spirituality.

The training focuses on the analysis and evolution of artistic expressions (pastel drawings, painting, collage, writing, singing, dancing, modelling, etc.), according to the proposals of the trainers.
It is not necessary to master an artistic technique…
