Back in MacKillop House!
Friday 3 July 2020

Su Hanfling. BA, Grad Dipl Info Sci, Masters Art Therapy, AThr (ANZACATA).:
"Beyond Words: creative expression for wellbeing"

(at MacKillop Conference Centre, 50 Archibald St, Lyneham)

A recent report from The World Health Organisation investigated arts based therapies from over 3000 studies and found “a major role for the arts in the prevention of ill health, promotion of health, and management and treatment of illness across the lifespan”.

Arts therapy is a specialist field that focusses on the therapeutic aspects of art making. It provides a safe and confidential space for a person to express complex feelings when words might not be available or enough. Arts therapy can help to make sense of a difficult or traumatic experience, explore solutions to challenges, and to find a way forward. The focus is on the connection and the process, not the outcome – so you don’t need to be ‘good’ at art to do arts therapy.

Su Hanfling is a Registered Arts Therapist working in the community with children, young people and adults. Su has worked in schools, hospitals, community-based services, private practice and as a lecturer at the University of Canberra.

Su will provide some background on expressive therapies and how creative expression can support wellness across the lifespan. She will also discuss the impact of COVID-19 in this context.
