Students who want to enroll in the course should be ready to experience art therapy techniques leading to better self-knowledge and should be motivated to do so. Students will work in a group of their peers (with 2 teachers "teaching" the course) and share their experience among themselves openly. The motivation of the students will be assessed based on a motivation letter, enclosed with a request for course enrollment. The motivation letter should be max 1 page long and should be composed as any essay with the student's reasons for their interest in the course and their expectations. The course is recommended for students who have already passed the course PS_BA011 Sociálně-psychologický výcvik ve skupině.
