Course Philosophy and Main Theoretical Approaches:

The post-graduate specialisation programme of Therapeutic Support through the Arts (Arts Therapies) covers the needs of practice, which encompasses the areas of special education, social pedagogy, educational and therapeutic work in kindergartens, schools, hospitals and other institutions, rehabilitation of people with physical disabilities, etc. Today all these areas require modern (therapeutic) programmes which also include various forms of support through the arts (arts therapies) – drama, dance movement, music, visual arts, either as supportive or independent forms of therapy. In the theoretical approach of humanistic psychology, encouraging the self-actualisation process is becoming increasingly important in developmental and therapeutic work with people with special needs. This process unfolds most effectively in creative arts activities. The creative process in various arts media contributes to the activation, rehabilitation, personal integration and socialisation of people with special needs. The post-graduate studies enable a systematic development of such support. Upon completing the specialisation, the candidates will be qualified to implement one of the forms of support with arts (arts therapies) into their previous professional field. In this way, the quality of their professional work within their profession will improve and they will be able to develop modern programmes in the area of therapeutic support through the arts – arts therapies.
