Sculptural Lifelines - Art Psychotherapy Experiential Workshop

Sculptural Lifelines - Art Psychotherapy Experiential Workshop

Time: 9:30am to 4:30pm, 03/07/17

Event Detail:

Sculptural Lifelines

When clients make a sculptural lifeline the emphasis is on the process of creating a three-dimensional artwork while reflecting on their life. This process offers an opportunity for self-exploration, and the sculptural lifeline also acts as a tangible reminder of multiple facets of life experiences, as well as the meanings and values ascribed to them. Reference can be made to sculptural lifelines during subsequent counselling sessions to, for instance, explore the impact of a client’s life events in the past and present. Despite that sculptural lifelines may contain representations of difficulties or intense emotions, the final tangible artwork can produce in clients a sense of satisfaction and/or pleasure in completion. Sonia’s journal article “The Use of Sculptural Lifelines in Art Psychotherapy” is available to download for free at http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/08322473.2016.1176813

Session Detail:

The Workshops

These experiential workshops are AASW Endorsed Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and they are designed to provide practitioners with an understanding of the therapeutic benefits of making sculptural lifelines or therapeutic dolls. Practitioners will also make their own sculptural lifeline or therapeutic doll to take with them at the end of the day.

The workshops begin with a presentation including applications, examples and techniques of making sculptural lifelines or therapeutic dolls, before practitioners engage with the process themselves. Even though sculptural lifelines and therapeutic dolls can often take several therapy sessions to complete, most practitioners will complete theirs during the workshop, providing them with a tangible reminder of the therapeutic benefits of these forms of art psychotherapy.

Prerequisites

Counselling skills and an understanding of psychotherapy.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the benefits of making sculptural lifelines or dolls as a therapeutic technique
  • Outline the key components of making sculptural lifelines or therapeutic dolls
  • Identify which clients would benefit from making sculptural lifelines or therapeutic dolls
  • Reflect on the experiential process of making their own sculptural lifeline or therapeutic doll in a professional workshop setting

Cost per workshop

Members of AASW or ANZATA $250 and Non-members $300 per workshop

Cost includes morning and afternoon tea, handouts, a booklet containing colour images of sculptural lifelines or therapeutic dolls (depending on the workshop) and an abundance of supplies / materials to be used during the workshop for participants to make their own sculptural lifeline or therapeutic doll (if you wish, you may also bring meaningful items to use).

Sonia Stace is an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker, a Registered Art Psychotherapist, and an Approved Counsellor for Victims of Crime. Sonia holds a Bachelor of Social Work (Honors 1st Class), a Master of Art Therapy, and a Diploma of Statutory Child Protection.

Therapeutic Doll Making

In Therapeutic Doll Making the emphasis is on the process of creating, developing, and reflecting on meanings held within the doll. This form of art psychotherapy is based on evidence-informed practice, and has the ability to assist clients attune to their physical experiences and their self-awareness, as well as their cognitive, emotional, and sensorimotor processing. Therapeutic Doll Making can be used with a wide range of populations and ages, and has multiple applications due to its diverse functions. It can be used with individual or group work, with siblings, or with parent/carer and child to improve attachment. This workshop includes a copy of Sonia’s journal article “Therapeutic Doll Making in Art Psychotherapy for Complex Trauma”.
