Following as assessment if you decide to avail of further Art Therapy one of the options available to you is the Brief Intervention 6 Week Course.
Brief Intervention Therapy is any therapy under eight weeks in duration. It is solution focused and aims are set at the outset.
During this time period, the therapeutic relationship as well as trust can develop between the therapist and the client and a deeper understanding of client needs can be established.
Following the 6 week course there is a review of the therapeutic journey and art process that has taken place. Recommendations are made by the therapist and the client's perspective is taken on board.
In the case of clients under 18 years of age, parents are invited in to meet both the therapist and their child following the review. Any skills or learning that can benefit the child and the family dynamics is shared at this point or sooner when necessary, this is done without breaching the client's confidentiality.
It is important to understand that each person receiving Art Therapy has their own pace at which to engage and their own personal set of abilities and needs all of which is taken into consideration. Therefore Brief-Intervention Therapy is not suitable for all circumstances and there are limits to what can be achieved during the time frame.
The suitability of this course will have been discussed during the initial assessment.
