Master of Expressive Arts Therapy
The programme has an emphasis on learning in consideration of Asian cultures, which would be applicable for me in my work. And there are students from a wide range of fields and backgrounds to learn from.
The programme is resourceful in helping us to develop sense in expanding clients' repertoire. It is innovative, creative and the faculty is very helpful in helping us to train us with using an integrated approach.
It is the place where Eastern and Western cultures and philosophies are adopted in the research and application of expressive arts therapy
I can learn multiple arts forms of expression and experience its benefits for healing through arts making.
By doing artworks, transformations happened when new insights were gained. Besides, the courses enable me to re-appreciate myself as well as others as very unique aesthetic human beings.
This programme is where you can meet artists, performers, business people, educators and even scientists from different cultures, and go through a journey together to become therapists. Healing, in the modern world, is both art and science. Being a therapist requires both a kind heart with the capacity to accept differences and a creative mind with textbook and real-world knowledge. It was from the exchanges with my fellow classmates and teachers that I began to find the balance.
Without Human Beings, there will be no Art. This programme is more than a career path, it is a vocational calling to those who believe in the healing power of Art. It transforms the misconception that creating or appreciating art is only for the artists/elite/academia. This program inspire Art's intrinsic qualities to permeate invisible barriers, cultivate imaginations, open doors to different cultures, connect all walks of life, create hope and most of all, to bridge between The Study of the Soul (Psychology) and The Language of the Soul (Arts).
The programme's rich hands-on practice and theoretical rigor created a truly transformative experience, while its supportive, diverse community made the learning process joyful as well.
It’s not only a learning process. It’s a process to heal self before healing others.
I feel that the instructors here are very passionate. They all have lots of experiences in arts and helping others.
Lecturers are specialists in the field.
