Registration is closed

This workshop introduces Interactive Drawing Therapy (IDT) as a 'tool' that promotes the effective and respectful use of drawing as a treatment intervention and that has the potential to enhance clinical practice, ongoing professional development, research and supervision.

IDT provides a structure that enhances art therapy practice, a structure that is not evident in the disparate art therapy literature and is not covered in training. There is also opportunity to discuss the interface between IDT and art therapy that is likely to stimulate challenges and considerations for art therapists. IDT offers not only innovative thoughts regarding art therapy treatment methods, but also research potential, theoretical challenge and interventions for difficult moments within practice.

IDT was developed as a communication tool for counsellors' use. There is increasing overseas interest as the clear effective steps promoted in this methodology are appreciated. IDT is quick to master contributing to the success of the training and its popularity in professional development amongst allied health professionals. This workshop is designed to further inform art therapists who embrace curiosity and openness to new considerations for best practice.
