ICAPT Arts Therapies skills in Dementia care

1 day training

Date: Wednesday 3rd April 2019

Timing: 09:15 -17:00, with 09:00 registration

Lunch: provided

This enjoyable, interactive, and fun learning experience will give an insight into the process and understanding of arts therapy to enable a fuller arts engagement with people who have a diagnosis of dementia. The day will outline dementia and arts therapy and look at how arts therapy communication can inform engagement and emotional understanding. Alongside this introduction will be an opportunity to interact with experienced drama, music and art therapists through structured and improvised workshops. We hope that attendees will gain greater understanding, increased skills and confidence in communicating and working creatively with people experiencing dementia.

Target audience: Arts facilitators, workshop leaders, volunteers and postgraduate arts students, trainee arts psychotherapists, carers and care workers, health care assistants and activity coordinators.
