Non-artistic Creativity in Therapy - slide deck cover I presented this webinar yesterday through eiseeducation to therapists, counsellors, and psychologists. People often associate creativity with artistic or expressive pursuits. In therapy, creativity can be seen as the sole domain of the arts/expressive therapists who use paints, clay, sand, music, poetry, and performance in their work. My interest is in encouraging non-arts therapists, ie talk therapists, to consider their work as creative. This is not a new idea. Non-artistic creativity is noted in therapy literature. We just don’t pay a lot of attention to it in practice. I offered the following action-oriented model of applying non-artistic creativity in talk therapy. The core concept is that with the right personal attitude, a therapist can engage in framing, visualising, and playing activities within the counselling room to increase their ability to respond creatively to complex and unpredictable client presentations and problems.
