The 2nd academic year at the Expressive Arts Institute Berlin continues to build upon the first year with emphasize on Intermodal Expressive Arts theoretical foundations, advanced methodologies and practice project development. It combines the content of the Master Module F and Module P in a comprehensive and practical way.

The Certificate Expressive Arts Advanced Practice CAP is designed to deepen the understanding of Intermodal Expressive Arts and leads in the professional application in various areas. It trains the participants to develop their own Expressive Arts approach and practice and integrate Intermodal Expressive Arts in their field of interest.

The 9 months series of seminars focuses on the theoretical, methodological and phenomenological foundations of the Intermodal Expressive Arts through assigned readings, lectures, theory seminars, project development, case studies, group supervision and intervision, discussions and arts-based explorations.

In an ongoing process oriented approach, the content unfolds as a continuous exploration of and skill training in the practices of the Intermodal Expressive Arts, weaving art –making into the theoretical, methodological and practical foundations of the Expressive Arts field.

Participants will become equipped with tools, skills and deepened knowledge
to incorporate Intermodal Expressive Arts methods into their own scope of practice and develop their own style. CAP furthermore continues to support
and engage participants in their personal and professional growth.
