Welcome to Person-Centered Expressive Arts!

Expressive Arts MovementIf you’re curious about expressive arts either as a career or for your own personal growth, you’ve come to the right place. For over 30 years, Natalie Rogers and the people she trained have been doing this healing, creative, and transformational work around the world.

PCEA was founded by Dr. Natalie Rogers and is based on her father Carl Rogers’ person-centered approach and her Creative Connection® process.   Learn about the expressive arts process. 

Person-Centered Expressive Arts Training

The Person-Centered Expressive Arts Institute offers a two-year PCEAT Certificate training program in collaboration with Meridian University. This experiential training is unique because it combines the person-centered theory, practice and philosophy of Carl Rogers with the expressive arts: Movement, Sound, Visual Art, Writing, and Drama. On completion students will receive a certificate from the Person-Centered Expressive Arts Institute.

Participants from around the world come to the program for many reasons—to use the expressive arts in counseling, teaching, mediation, social change, and group facilitation, and/or to awaken personal growth and creativity. The program is also ideal for people who are at a crossroads, those wanting to connect with their own authenticity and work through issues using expressive arts methods in a safe and,  non-judgmental setting.

The training is open to both Meridian and non-Meridian students. No art training is required, just an open mind and the desire to explore the magic of the expressive arts.

Enrollment is now open for our 2017/2019 program which begins in August 2017. The deadline to apply is June 30, 2017.

To learn more, please visit our certificate program details page or e-mail Dr. Sue Ann Herron, our Executive Director. She will be happy to arrange a phone or Skype session with you to discuss whether the program is right for you and to answer any questions you may have.
