Art Therapy Courses
Online Certificate & Diploma Courses
Looking for art therapy Singapore? Then you’re part of an increasing number of people looking to enrich their therapy knowledge and skills in a fast-growing area of expertise.
As reported in the Straitstimes, “The increase in the number of people seeking help for mental health issues has prompted the Singapore Association for Mental Health (SAMH) to start an initiative that provides therapy through art … Global studies have described the positive impact of the arts on mental well-being. A growing body of evidence suggests that engaging in the visual arts for adults with mental health conditions can reduce depression and anxiety, increase self-respect and encourage re-engagement with the wider world.” These same benefits are experienced in the counselling of children and teenagers.
If you live in Singapore and you’re looking for an Australian-based educational experience to enrich your therapy skills or to equip you to work as a professional art therapist, College for Educational and Clinical Art Therapy (CECAT) offers a solid foundation.
At CECAT, students can complete our entire course online from the comfort of their own home. This includes Skype meetings with our Director and Senior Lecturer, psychologist Robert Gray.
As an alternative to the Skype meetings, you could attend one of our on-campus Intensives as part of a trip to Australia. Pick an Australian city of your choice and work with Robert in person over an enlightening 5-Day Intensive (after completing the 10 Certificate modules) or 3-Day Intensive (after completing the 5 Diploma modules).
We invite you to read on and discover all that we have to offer.
