Person-Centered Expressive Arts Training Program

  1. 1. CERTIFICATE PROGRAM We invite you to explore a transformational journey of awakening creativity for healing, personal growth, professional development and positive social change.
  2. 2. This certificate program founded by Dr. Natalie Rogers is unique because it combines experiential learning, theory and practice in the person-centered philosophy of Carl Rogers and the expressive arts. Our PCEAT training program consists of six week-long residential intensive courses over two years, with a commitment to both years. ABOUT THE PROGRAM
  3. 3. Expressive arts refers to using the emotional, intuitive aspects of ourselves through movement, art, sound, journal writing and psychodrama. It does not use art to diagnose, analyze or ‘treat’ people. We use the arts to let go, to express, to gain insight and self-empowerment. WHAT IS “EXPRESSIVE ARTS THERAPY”?
  4. 4. We are psychotherapists, social workers, educators, counselors, nurses, and organizational consultants. We work with people in private sessions, facilitate groups, and teach classes. We work in clinics, hospitals, recovery centers, educational institutions, organizations and other facilities that promote creativity and mental health. In many cases we are artists ourselves. WHO ARE PERSON-CENTERED EXPRESSIVE ARTS PRACTITIONERS?
  5. 5. ABOUT OUR STUDENTS Our participants come from around the globe. They are of all ages and come from a wide variety of backgrounds. They attend six week-long courses over two years at a beautiful retreat, Westerbeke Ranch, in the rolling hills of the wine country 45 minutes north of San Francisco.

  7. 7. “My purpose is to inspire you to rediscover your innate creative ability and to learn ways to explore that creativity with a freedom of self- expression that is healing and transformative.” ~ Dr. Natalie Rogers THE CREATIVE CONNECTION® PROCESS of Dr. Natalie Rogers …combines the different modalities of expressive arts in a synergistic tapestry—each one deepening and building on the other to create an experience that far exceeds any one modality used on its own.
  8. 8. “The client-centered or person-centered approach developed by my father, Carl Rogers, emphasizes the therapist’s role as being empathic, open, honest, congruent, and caring as she listens in depth and facilitates the growth of an individual or a group.” “This philosophy incorporates the belief that each individual has worth, dignity, and the capacity for self-direction. Carl Rogers’ philosophy is based on a trust in an inherent impulse toward growth in every individual. I base my approach to expressive arts therapy on this very deep faith in the innate capacity of each person to reach toward her full potential.” ~ Natalie Rogers WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE “PERSON-CENTERED”?
