Dance Therapy Workshop

   August 4th was day of great fun and relaxation on which any anger or stress was cast aside. In participation with the Trueman Institute for the Advancement of Peace, a research institute of Hebrew University, Jerusalem, MEND organised the workshop.

   MEND was privileged to have Professor France Schott Billman, a specialist in the field of Art Therapy, to explain how art can have pragmatic qualities whilst also being aesthetically pleasing. It facilitates communication down to a neutral, primitive and nonverbal form. A feedback session was subsequently organised to explore the impact of the workshop and to stress the reduced importance of language in dialogue.
