Expressive Arts with Elderly Clients
Course Description

This ten-hour workshop will delve into the aging issues arising from the second half of life. Using the image of aging "After the Sweet Bird of Youth," participants will explore the normative physical, emotional, existential, creative, spiritual, and critical issues arising in aging through a Jungian expressive arts therapy lens. Using imagery and somatic approaches to therapy, Expressive Arts Therapy and Jungian psychology can provide an array of sensory and visual languages to explore aging issues.

This course is designed for therapists who have an introductory and intermediate understanding of Jungian psychology, expressive arts therapy, and the issues of aging. Participants will deepen their understanding of these clinical areas and learn to apply these processes in their practices.

This class can be taken as a stand-alone course or as part of our Expressive Arts or Mental Health for Aging Adults Certificate program. For information about the Expressive Arts Certificate, click here. For information about the Mental Health for Aging Adults Certificate, click here.
