Art Therapy to cope with Depression and Anxiety
Remember: This course includes a manual especially written for October 2023.
This course is exactly as it says in the title:
1. Be kind (how? when? to whom?)
2. Be happy (why? how does kindness do this?)
3. Reduce stress (through being kind?)
Each lecture follows the same format:
a. Discussion about the title eg H.E.L.P.S.O. or S.H.E.B.A.D
b. A focus on what to do as an example of being kind
c. A focused 2-3 minute meditation
Remember throughout that this is a course to be used, with exercises to do and to share, to reflect, to analyse and discuss. In a world at war where loneliness and depression are commonplace, the course, the Q/A offers a place where emotions can be shared and – as per a ‘global classroom’ – self-exploration and understanding are developed. The manual that accompanies the course is current as at October 2023. A December manual will be added. Throughout the approach is one of gentle encouragement – participate and share as much as you wish.
A fourth section has been added:
Using Art Therapy to explore and share kind actions. This is current as at October 2023..
Who this course is for:
- Young, old – it doesn’t matter
- All those needing a reduction in stress
- Those interested in Art Therapy as a way of growing as a family
