For over two decades the Art Therapy Department has worked to establish a portfolio of courses offering tuition and professional training in areas from adult education through arts in community practice to art therapy; exploring creativity and art making within a social context and the differing roles it can play. The central theme and link between all our courses is that of the innate creativity of individuals and the potential this has, when used as a creative methodology by practitioners, to enhance communication, self and group understanding and relationship building between individuals and groups within our society. This year sees the Art Therapy Department change its name to Department of Arts in Health & Community Practice, reflecting more accurately the range of courses we offer.

Art Therapy Introductory Days and the Cork Art Therapy Summer School provide entry level opportunities to explore the theory and practice of Art Therapy, together with a chance to work experientially.

The Principles of Art Therapy Certificate (Level 8 on the National Framework of Qualification) provides an opportunity to explore the core principles of Art Therapy within a group setting. For many it may be a step towards training as a qualified art therapist. For others it may introduce them to a more sympathetic understanding of the role of art in rehabilitation and development work.

At professional training level, we offer the qualifying Masters Degree in Art Therapy. This course was the first of its kind in Ireland and, for over a decade now, sees Irish trained art therapists graduate annually.

Exploring other roles for the arts within a social context, the Arts in Group Facilitation Certificate (Level 8 on the National Framework of Qualification) aims to facilitate artists, community workers, care assistants and anyone involved in informal education in the development of their facilitation and leadership skills in creative group work. The Creativity & Change Certificate (Level 8 on the National Framework of Qualification), with an emphasis on social change and global citizenship, is aimed at a similar group, including youth workers, activist educators, volunteers and anyone who is interested in exploring the connection between creativity, learning and change in the world.

Further information and booking/application forms for all these courses are available at www.artincontext.eu
