Dubrovnik International Experiential Workshop Exploring Your Life Story through Art & Body Psychotherapy

Experience an exclusive art & body psychotherapy workshop in Dubrovnik, Croatia

Exploring Your Life Story through Art & Body Psychotherapy

Integrating Art, Body and Mind

This 4-day workshop will provide opportunities to explore your life stories and experiences from the dual perspective of art and body psychotherapies. Creative methods of working both with art materials and directly with bodily subjective experience will be used to raise awareness and gentle curiosity towards yourself and your life story. These experiences will be unique to each participant and there will be opportunities to process each day through group discussions, feedback and reflections. In this way, it is expected that there will be an attempt to give each of you a new, distinctive and fruitful perspective on the nature of your unique life story.
The workshop is intended for helping professions; psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, pedagogues, occupational therapists, rehabilitators, and all those who, regardless of their profession, wish to deepen their knowledge of self and their capacity to live a fulfilled life. Participants are comming from all over the world:  countries like Australia, Belgium, Saudi Arabia, Slovenia and South Africa. 
This unique workshop will be held in Dubrovnik, from 20 to 24 August 2013, by LoreLaura Jimenez Alonso, clinical art therapist from Austria, and John Waterston, body psychotherapist from the United Kingdom. Throughout the year, they regularly hold cycles of workshops in Zagreb. 

About LoreLaura

Art therapy is a form of expressive therapy that uses the creative process of making art to help people to resolve issues as well as develop and manage their behaviors and feelings, reduce stress, and improve self-esteem and awareness. Clients don’t have to be talented or artists.

About John Waterston

Body psychotherapy starts from the belief that for efficient psychotherapy, one should have an integral view of the psyche and the body. In this it is guided by the fact that many psychological problems such as anxiety, panic attacks, sexual problems, eating disorders and various addictions, have a direct correlation in the body.
