There is considerable interest in this work in Spain and Portugal, where Karin Jarman has now been repeatedly invited to come and give courses to health care professionals and students of art therapy in the format of weekend workshops. Subsequently, this work has found its way particularly in the mental health sector and youth work.
Karin has been teaching in Alicante, Barcelona, Santiago de Compostella and Lisbon and will be travelling to the Canary Islands next year.
Her courses are designed to be both informative and practical, as well as fun, using interactive art exercises in the normally large gatherings of 30 to 40 people, as well as lecturing and seminar work. As she does not speak either Spanish or Portuguese, she is fortunate to have an experienced collegaue, Maya Moussa, who does the translating.
