Group-analytic Art Therapy

“Unshared stress is a central factor in the origin of illness.”

- Charles E. Fritz (DISASTERS AND MENTAL HEALTH, 1996)

BAT’s Tuesday group has been running since June 2021 and is a long-running group. There is a maximum of eight participants in this group, and new members are accepted whenever a seat becomes available. 

The first half of every session will have a art-therapeutic focus, the second half will have a traditional talk-therapeutic focus. English is the main spoken language in this group.

The artistic media used in the group will be clay. The use of clay in therapy capitalizes on the unique characteristics of this tactile, highly sensory medium. Clay calls out to be explored by the senses, to be pushed, pulled, moulded, hollowed out, and to be added to, piece by piece by piece. No prior experience with sculpting is required.


This group ended in the fall of 2023. New groups will be announced here in the future.
