Every field has its own unique ethical concerns as well as universal moral dilemmas.  This class explores the professional and ethical issues concerning clinicians, and also how it relates to the field of Expressive Therapies.

EXT   Principles and Practice of Expressive Arts Therapies
This course is an overview of basic principles and philosophical approaches to Expressive Arts Therapies.  Arts practice as intrinsically healing (Art as Therapy) is one aspect of Expressive Arts Therapies, drawing on historical healing traditions.  Implementing arts interventions during clinical practice (Art in Therapy) is another widespread approach, drawing on the arts’ ability to cultivate insight and bring the unconscious to consciousness.  Lastly, historically the arts have been an integral part of all major spiritual traditions, in and of themselves, they are a catalyst towards spiritual growth (Arts as a Spiritual Path).  From the drawings and poetry of William Blake, to the composing of Hildegard Von Bingen, how the arts are utilized towards man’s spiritual progress is explored.

 

EXT   Principles and Practice of Psychotherapy
A basic knowledge of psychotherapy is indispensable to the Expressive Arts Therapist, offering fundamental principles and approaches to the clinician, gaining greater versatility to conduct and participate in a wide range of therapeutic settings.  Freudian Psychoanalysis, Jungian Psychodynamic Therapy, Rogerian Client-Centered Therapy, and other core approaches are explored, giving the student a foundation of counseling and psychotherapy in which to draw upon when utilizing Expressive Arts Therapy.  In addition, gaining skills such as, rapport building, and trust building will be crucial to cultivate in any therapeutic relationship, especially if one is to expect a client to ‘perform’ artwork, drumming, or dancing in a personal setting.

 

EXT   Theories of Personality

An overview of psychopathology, disorders and syndromes, that one may find in clinical practice.  The student will become familiar with the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, with its system of psychodiagnosis, which can offer a clinician a suggested course of treatment possibilities.  Understanding that the DSM-IV-TR is not a labeling manual, but a dictionary of terms and descriptions of the many facets of the human condition.

 

EXT   Professional and Ethical Issues
Every field has its own unique ethical concerns as well as universal moral dilemmas.  This class explores the professional and ethical issues concerning clinicians, and also how it relates to the field of Expressive Therapies. Client-Patient confidentiality, Dual-Role relationships, are a factor for all clinicians, but also, is it ethical to show a client’s artwork?

 

EXT   Practicum in Expressive Arts Therapy

Doctoral Program in Expressive Arts: Therapy, Coaching, Consulting & Education, Conflict Transformation & Peacebuilding

The doctoral program in Expressive Arts combines two Summer School residential trainings at EGS Campus in Saas-Fee, leading to the CAGS Certificate of Advanced Post-Graduate Studies with individualized dissertation research done in the student's home country.

 

All EGS seminars, workshops and colloquia are conducted in English; dissertations can be written in English, but also in German, French or Spanish if suitable dissertation advisor can be found. The CAGS program is designed as a self-sufficient unit. Students may choose to enroll without intending to go on to achieve the Ph.D. degree. However, for those students who wish to go on to achieve the Ph.D., the successful completion of the CAGS is a prerequisite for advancement to Doctoral Candidacy and the writing of the Dissertation.

 

The degree of Doctor of Philosophy given by EGS is accredited by Malta Further and Higher Education Authority (MFHEA)


The normal time required to achieve the Ph.D. degree is five years, two years for the Qualifying Phase (Part One) and three years for the Candidacy Phase (Part Two):

The Qualifying Phase, in which the student completes the CAGS

The Candidacy Phase, in which the student establishes their Doctoral Committee and writes their Dissertation with the help of their dissertation advisor. The student has the right to participate in the “Arts-based Writing and Research colloquium”. The student can choose when to attend the colloquium.  Doctoral Committee must approve the Dissertation Proposal. When the Dissertation is completed and accepted by the Committee, the Doctoral Examination and Defense will take place. Upon successful completion of the Doctoral Defense, the student will be awarded the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). The degree will be formally conferred during the Summer School subsequent upon the completion of the Defense. Students are encouraged to attend the Ceremony of Conferral of the Degree and celebrate the occasion.
