EXA Approach: Collaborative and Narrative Expressive Arts Therapy

School of Professional Psychology and Health EXA 6618 2.00

This class introduces students to the theories and practices that inform collaborative and narrative approaches to EXA. In this class, rooted within social constructionist philosophy and congruent with the principles and practices of the recovery model, students learn how to use EXA to build collaborative relationships with clients, integrating “playful approaches to serious problems” (Epston, Freeman & Lobovits). Students learn how to coauthor with clients' strength-based alternative narratives in written, visual, poetic, musical and embodied forms. EXA 5522; EXA 5501
