This course will provide you with the key principles of creative therapies including art, play, dance, drama and music. It will help you to work with a diverse range of clients, from people who have experienced traumas to members of Aboriginal and cross-cultural communities. The course blends Western approaches with Aboriginal healing practices and knowledges. It is designed for you if you're working in health, community, justice, education, and related fields, or if you work in Aboriginal and cross-cultural communities. The course also offers an entry point to higher education.


This course consists of four units that revolve around creative therapies with individuals who experienced trauma, live in remote communities, or are from other diverse groups. Units include intensives, where you'll attend workshops and complete activities in person, as well as online discussions, videos, and other materials.
