December 8th: Art Therapy and Acquired Brain Injury

Art Therapy and Acquired Brain injury:  The challenges of developing a therapeutic alliance.

Kate Rothwell and Peter.

Kate is currently Head of Arts Therapies in East London NHS Foundation Trust,  a Wing Art Therapist at H.M.P Grendon and visiting lecturer on the MA Art Therapy programmes at University of Hertfordshire, Derby, Roehampton and Goldsmiths.

Peter a private patient who acquired global brain injury from Carbon Monoxide poisoning. Too high functioning to join a brain injury group, though a keen artist in his own right, Peter’s brain injury manifests itself in positive and negative differences including short term memory loss and lack of social inhibition.

Peter and Kate join to discuss the process of art therapy and will show a selection of Peter’s art work to invite further discussion and exploration.
