Day One: Introduction to Mindfulness Based Art Therapy (MBAT)
A creative and explorative workshop integrating therapeutic art making with guided mindfulness practices.
The session includes: art making as a mindful activity, guided mindfulness practices, mindfulness of the body, compassion-focused practices and group reflection.
This offers an opportunity for self-expression, exploring care for oneself and others, investigation into direct experience, and, practicing with others in a group context.
You are welcome to attend if you are a beginner, or more experienced, to either mindfulness and/or art making.

This day is aimed at art therapists and other related professionals who wish to have a deeper understanding of the theory and practice of Mindfulness-Based Art Therapy (MBAT). It is intended to support your exploration in integrating mindfulness at your workplace.
The learning will take place through case studies, working groups divided into clinical areas, discussion and role play. The clinical areas to be explored will include mental health, children and learning disabilities.
