602 - Interpretative Frameworks in Art Therapy

3 credits / 30 hours

A variety of interpretative frameworks will be examined that can be applied to the practice of art therapy. These frameworks include metaphor theory, structuralism, psychoanalytic theory, hermeneutics and the phenomenological method. A postmodern approach to interpretation will be used to explore art, nature, symbols, culture, story and therapy.
