Workshop: Art Therapy #2: Metaphorical Cards and Painting
Metaphorical Cards and how they can help us express ourselves better
Working with the cards can start with a simple exercise and elevate to much more complicated exercises which can unravel the stories of your life. When we connect with the right side of our brain we connect with the creative part of ourselves and with our feelings. We can explore memories, experiences, emotions and heal through this exploration. Metaphors and symbols can help us relate to a complex world. They add a layer of richness to your emotional experience and they can help us find our direction and move to action even faster.
In this workshop you will learn:
✔ Build a deeper connection with yourself ✔ Put conflicting and confusing events and memories in an order ✔ Learn how to express your feelings and ideas, especially in hard and confusing times ✔ See an overview of relationships and important phases in your life ✔ Gain more confidence in understanding yourself and be more mindful

"As an expressive therapist I find the 'River set' an original and valuable therapeutic tool. It enables the client to express, unthreatened, his inner world and the changes he experiences during his life." ART THERAPIST "A very good deck of cards, very professional and well designed. I use them a lot with my clients from all ages." COUNSELOR-PSYCHOTHERAPIST "A superb flexible tool, enabling work from a single card depicting a section of a river, to continuums of cards – with different continuums representing the complete river: past and future, real and imagined."

The designer of these innovative therapeutic tools, Gali Salpeter (M.A.), is an Expressive Therapist with specialisation in Drama and Narrative Therapy. Gali worked with children,adolescents and adults having special needs, in various settings around the world. "I have used decks of projective cards in my sessions throughout the years, but I kept searching for a way to help my clients express, observe and work with the many processes they were going through in their lives. This led me to develop the three sets."
