An Art Therapist

An Art Therapist

A qualified Art Therapist has completed a postgraduate and/or masters intensive training course lasting two to three years. Training includes art, psychology and psychotherapy. Art therapists are keenly aware of and trained to work with symbolism and help clients to understand their personal connection to this symbolism as it emerges in artwork. Art Therapists are practicing under ethical codes of practice. “Art Therapist’s unique skills and knowledge in the areas of nonverbal communication enable them to develop avenues for expression not possible through traditional methods” (The South Florida Art Psychotherapy Institute).

藝術治療師

藝術治療師均完成為期兩至三年嚴格的訓練課程,並獲頒授研究生及/或碩士學位。訓練課程內容包括美術、心理學及心理治療。藝術治療師經受訓敏銳地覺察藝術作品中所呈現的象徵符號,協助當事人理解個人與該象徵符號的聯繫。藝術治療師在從事藝術治療工作時,均遵守專業守則。「藝術治療師具備的獨特技巧及非語言溝通方面的知識,可以讓當事人拓展個人的表達空間,這是傳統心理治療所不能達致的成效。」

  2. Hi, I am considering in applying for the master degree course of expressive art therapy in Hong Kong University. Could you please share with your opinion about that course? Thanks

    1. Hi,
      sorry for the late reply.
      There is an information session from HKU. Otherwise, come and join HKAAT and talk to some of our members individually!
      Cheers,

    1. Hi Zumi, unfortunately there is no formal art therapy training in hong kong at the moment. You can consider other countries, singapore or taiwan got training programmes.

  3. Hi, I am considering to apply for the master degree course of expressive art therapy of the HKU. It requires that applicants should have proficiency in certain areas of art. I do have a few certificates of flower arrangement, but i wonder if the faculty would consider flower arrangement as a visual art?

    1. Hi , as we are not sure about the requirement of the master degree, i recommemd u attend their information session, and speak directly with their teaching staff. Cheers
