Who is this program for?
The Art Therapy Day Program is open to anyone wishing to utilise creative expression as a commencement to their therapeutic exploration and is particularly suitable for participants who are not ready to participate in talking therapies.
Please note that no artistic talent is required.
How will it help me?
Participation in the unique discipline of Art Therapy will utilise creative expression to inspire self-esteem, self-awareness and emotional resilience.
Our program aims to reacquaint participants with their strengths and inner resources in order to reduce distress and improve their general wellbeing. Participants will learn to manage negative thinking and behaviours whilst developing healthy and rewarding thinking skills.
When does it run?
Please contact us to find out when the next program will be run.
The program runs for 8-10 weeks and attendance is required Mondays or Thursdays from 9.30am to 3.00pm.
How do I access the program?
To be admitted to our programs, you will need to ask your General Practitioner for a referral to a Geelong Clinic accredited Psychiatrist. The Psychiatrist will then refer you to the Day Program.
Your GP can address your referral to: ‘Dear Doctor…’ or a Psychiatrist of your choice.
The referral should be faxed by your GP to 03 5248 4852.
Once cover or funding is checked and confirmed, the program coordinator will coordinate next steps with you.
