Portraits are a powerful tool to affirm and connect to a client's own reality. Self-portrait process is a chance to express the authentic voice and true self, to remember to clients who they are and be centered in the here and now.

During this workshop you will:

  • Discover the power of portraits to heal.
  • Self-portraits, the object and the spectator
  • Experiment with a big range of Art techniques creating portraits.
  • Investigate the dynamics surrounding self-portraiture are also considered in light of Schaverien's (1995) discussion of the three-way form of relating that develops in art therapy between the client, their image, and the Art therapist.
  • Self-portraits may allow the client to get in touch with aspects of themselves on both physical and emotional levels and the completed image may reflect unexplored elements of the self, back to the client. 
  • Discover the importance of awareness and self-acceptance.
  • Reflect about the relationship between the creation of self-portraits in art therapy and Winnicott's (2005) concept of mirroring.
  • Presenting the theme of duality in self-portraits exploring client's two opposing, contrasting, or complementary sides of themselves
  •  Each client's exploration of self-portraiture is unique and significant in different ways.
