General information

This course introduces Creative Psychotherapy (CP) to those seeking a deeper understanding of human nature, and experience how creativity enriches and enhances our knowledge, perception, and emotional intelligence. During this course students will learn about the principles of CP, and actively experience the methods of practice.

CP is a therapeutic method that utilises creativity as its core part in treating mental health dysfunctions. CP is a process, where a relationship is formed between the psychotherapist, the client and the creative work providing a safe framework for the inner self to unfold, heal and flourish.

Psychotherapy stemming from psychology is a very young discipline formed tentatively over millennia. The inner aspects of our being have been defined in antiquity as the Psyche, the Spirit (Pneuma) and the Mind (Nous), in describing something manifested only in our behaviour. Healing of the Psyche existed as support from family, friends and guidance by spiritual or religius leaders of our communities.

Course participants will experience the making of creative work as a way of exploring, and connecting with their subconscious. Creativity is used as a tool for understanding the self and the social environment.

The course’s methodology takes into consideration the individual’s ability and willingness to explore at one’s own pace and style in a setting where confidentiality is respected and where it is safe to express both ideas and emotions.


Tallinn Summer School arranges accommodation for foreign participants at student dormitory (5-minutes walk from the university, double and triple rooms).
