About Arts Based Therapy:
Arts Based Therapy (ABT) is defined as the clinical and evidence-based use of art forms i.e. music, drama, visual arts, to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship.

ABT addresses learning disabilities, intellectual challenges, autism, mental health, de-addiction, palliative care & pain management, rehabilitation for trafficking, abuse, domestic violence issues, issues around LGBTQIA+ and communities affected by violence and trauma, and social work settings.

About Lighthouse & Certificate Course in Arts Based Therapy:
Lighthouse has been working in therapy and healing for 20 years. We build the capacity of individuals by equipping them with Arts Based Therapy skills and tools and work towards strengthening their courage and resolve in walking the path of a mental health practitioner.

The Arts Based Therapy Certificate Course from Lighthouse is a part-time course that requires students to complete  25 Credit Hours ie 400 hours of Theory and Practical work over a duration of 9 months. On successful completion of the program, students receive a Certificate in Arts Based Therapy.

The course fee per student is ₹60,000, including the ABT kit.

In the last five years, Lighthouse Centre has trained over 90 students as Arts Based Therapy Practitioners. Through the practical work of the course, students have offered therapy to various client populations in need for more than 30,000 hours and documented over 90 research papers.

Lighthouse aims to offer Arts Based Therapy training to individuals from marginalized communities with immense potential and commitment to bring social change. The students will be working with deprived populations and can benefit hugely from their engagement.
We are raising funds to subsidize the fees for the students and would love for your support in our endeavour!

Join the Arts Based Therapy Movement and Support Us:
We are looking for sponsorship for 28 students' ABT kits - ₹560000/-  this will include their manuals, videos for learning and musical instruments, visual art material, drama, and movement materials, which is enough for them to work with 8-10 individuals at a time.

Join us in making healing accessible and strengthening communities by tapping into the potential of their youth!

Thank you 🙏🏼
