557.9 Art Therapy Grief and Loss

This unique 1 credit class is often held off campus at a retreat center. The class meets from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon, using the contemplative nature of this setting to reflect on our own relationship with death and other losses, and the ways in which art making assists us to navigate and transform the experience of grief.  Students will explore complex losses experienced by clients and the power of art therapy as a healing modality for clients with grief and loss issues.  Adlerian perspectives on grief and loss will also be addressed. 10/20
