The live professional training program on Creativity in Counseling: a Foundation for Relational Practice is presented by Thelma Duffey, PhD.

This program will address the role of creativity in counseling (CIC) practice and the means by which growth-fostering relationships can support both client and counselor creativity and resourcefulness. CIC may involve interventions such as music, art, literature, and play, among others, and is grounded in the professional definition of counseling. As a model, CIC involves a shared counseling process leading to growth-promoting shifts in clients’ thoughts, behaviors, and feelings. Creativity in Counseling can be integrated along the spectrum of theories and attends to context, a focus on strengths, culture, and the counseling relationship.
