Supervision

Supervision sessions online or at the clinic, for professional art therapists who wish to obtain their ATR certification.

According to the Association of Art Therapists of Quebec, we can define art therapy in this way:

Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy. It draws its foundations from art and psychology. Art therapy encompasses expression and reflection, both pictorial and verbal. If the client approaches the same type of psychological problems as in a conventional verbal therapy, he or she engages in a process that relies on artistic expression and the creation of images for therapeutic purposes. The production of images serve as a privileged communication tool between the client and the art therapist. Once the image has been created, the art therapist welcomes the client’s verbalizations and offers with the client’s support interpretations that can promote awareness to resolve the psychological difficulties and conflicts presented. Through its training, the art therapist is able to evaluate the psychological functioning of the client and to propose interventions and therapeutic treatments adapted to the problems presented by the client.
