Teaching a Course on Creativity in Counseling: Ideas for Counselor Educators
Smith, Allison L.
Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, v6 n2 p150-165 2011
The benefits of creativity in counseling have been proclaimed by authors; however, training on creativity is sparse. Some literature exists on ways to implement a course on creativity in counseling, and certain counseling programs have incorporated classes and workshops on creativity in master's-level counseling programs. Still, there has been a call for more detailed descriptions for teaching the arts in counseling. In addition, bridging the gap between academia and creativity has been cited as an important consideration for educators interested in creativity in counseling (Carson & Becker, 2004). This article is an answer to the call for more detailed descriptions for teaching creativity in counselor education. As well, it details how to bridge the gap between academia and creativity.
