    Art Psychotherapy to Reimagine Peace
    Art is a medium for an individual to develop his/her potential and to connect to the world. Art psychotherapy is a form of treatment and tool for self-development and exploration. In this world of instability, art psychotherapy can be the very answer to harmonise and reinvent the chaos within human minds and lives.

    I first encountered Art therapy in 2000. I’ve found it very powerful and transformational and still feel the same ever since. So it has become my passion and perhaps will remain as my lifelong career.

    Art Therapy Seminar: 心理受創兒童藝術治療中之治療關係 / Therapeutic relationship in art therapy with children who have traumatic experience
    在心理治療中,治療關係是帶動正面轉變的重要貢獻因素之一。在藝術治療中,治療師、案主及藝術媒體三者所構成的治療空間,成為過程中獨特的三角關係。是次工作坊,講者透過個案分享及藝術體驗活動,以心理動力及依附理論作為框架,與參加者分享心理受創兒童藝術治療中的治療關係特性。 Therapeutic relationship is regarded as a significant contributor in leading to positive therapeutic change in psychotherapy across different treatment modalities. In Art Therapy, the uniqueness of therapeutic relationship is the inclusion of art, which turns into a triangular relationship in the space among therapist, client and art. In this workshop, based on case sharing and experiential art-making activity, the characteristics of therapeutic relationship in art therapy with children will be presented with reference from the framework of Psychodynamic perspective and Attachment Theory.
