Meaningful therapeutic work doesn’t always have to take time. Sometimes, one 50-minute session is enough. This experiential workshop explores the powerful aspects of single session art therapy, where therapist and client only meet for one session. Participants will gain confidence in conducting single sessions, gain insight into which materials are a must-have when leading single sessions, and learn numerous single session directives, or to use as tools for building therapeutic relationships on the fly.
