Dyadic parent-child art psychotherapy training - Level 1

Dyadic parent-child art psychotherapy is a way of working which focuses directly on the child’s primary attachment relationship. The therapist does not become the child’s therapist or the caregiver’s therapist, but the relationship’s therapist.

Open to qualified and trainee art therapists only (final year trainees only).

The course is appropriate for all art therapists, including those with experience working dyadically and also those who have never practiced in this way. The aim of this course is practical: to give art therapists what they need to develop their dyadic art therapy work. A rationale and basic principles will be provided along with an outline of how to put these into practice.

Learning will be through short presentations from the two trainers, case vignettes, videos, working in break-out groups for discussion, sharing and role play, and reflective art making.

Learning outcomes:

  • The rationale for dyadic work
  • Three approaches to dyadic work
  • Preparing the caregiver
  • Considerations for online dyadic work
  • Overview and rational
  • Reflective art making
  • Scenario discussion and role play
  • Questions

Tutors: Anthea Hendry & Katie Wilson

I now have a much better understanding of dyadic work and feel more confident to try this in practice.
