ABT Certificate Course  
The ABT Certificate Course has been designed as a response to a lack of systematic and supervised training in this field. Training is available abroad, but high costs often make this inaccessible. By implementing the training in India, we are also addressing needs and issues that are unique and specific to India.

Students will learn both theoretical approaches and practical skills to prepare them to work therapeutically through the medium of creative arts in their working environment.

An experiential element
of the course enables students to explore art and healing in relation to their own lives, beliefs, attitudes, skills and dreams.
Following the training, students are required to maintain ABT projects in their institution as well as produce research findings in the form of reports, case studies and bio-medical studies.

This course would benefit
people working as Professional Social Workers, Counsellors, Caregivers, Psychologists, Special Educators, Teachers, Psychiatrists, Medical Practitioners, Therapists (Speech, Physio, Occupational, etc.)
