What actually is Therapeutic Photography?
It’s the act of using photography to gain insight and promote healing.
What are the benefits?
The benefits often come more from the process of thinking about and taking the photo rather than the final result. The goal isn’t a perfect photo, but to gain awareness about yourself and your life situation. There are no rules or judgement in the process and no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ photos. A photograph is all about the meaning you give it. This is how therapeutic photography is healing; you choose what has meaning for you!
This workshop will touch on the underpinning principles of this new intervention and demonstrate how you can use this approach in your practice. The workshop will briefly look at the benefits, both for practitioners, and clients, and will use theory to illustrate how to use photographs in practice to encourage and direct narratives.
You will be introduced to the process of working with photographs to explore self-image, relationships, environment, culture and society.
This unique afternoon workshop will involve some fun and engaging exercises with everyone’s camera or camera phone so please make sure you don’t forget it!
Neil Gibson from Robert Gordon University is taking the workshop and delivers a flexible online module course in Therapeutic Photography at Robert Gordon University.
