HEALING: Training of Trainers Workshop

Between the 15th and 19th of November, the European partners working in the HEALING project met in Universidade Católica Portuguesa, in Portugal, to share their knowledge and experience on Arts Therapy Education through training workshops.

As for the project, the aim is to support health services to improve long-term quality of life, by stabilizing degenerative diseases, for example, but also to support and enhance mental health treatment. The intention is to use art-based therapeutic activities to work with mental health patients, long-term conditions patients, refugees, orphans, or elderly in homecare.

To achieve this goal, the requirement is that partners develop a multidisciplinary diploma in Art therapy in Health Education. This will enhance education and it will be possible for professionals to work with arts as part of their therapeutic work.
