The Symbolism of THE TAROT in Psychotherapy
Gestalt Art Therapy Centre is using creative ways to offer professional support to Psychologists, Counsellors, Therapists, Social workers and social service providers who are working with clients in therapy sessions.
USING THE TAROT IN A THERAPY SESSION GESTALT APPROACH
Using the Tarot with a psychotherapeutic objective is novel and exciting.
The reason being that the cards are associated with the Archetypes (Jung) therefore the work is directly relevant to the discovery of the unconscious material indicated in the symbolic images in the cards.
We tend to project everything onto images before us. Our thoughts, feelings, and emotions, and make decisions based on our selection of a specific card. In this workshop the participants will learn how to use Tarot cards as a technique to deepen their work with clients and find unconscious material in a Gestalt Art Therapy approach.
