HEALING project will be designed and implemented across (8) Universities in Tunisia, Jordan and (5) across Europe (Italy, Portugal, Greece, Belgium, Croatia). The main objective of the project is to represent and encourage the development of the Arts Therapies and Arts Therapies education in partner countries, in particular, to design professional educational program (e-learning package) that will enable all staff and students working with patients with long term conditions to offer their patients arts-based therapeutic activities. The consortium will collaborate to create materials for the e-Learning package of vocational training for staff and students in how to use the arts as a therapeutic tool. This new learning package will enable staff from a variety of professional backgrounds to include the arts as part of their therapeutic work. (The Arts Therapies include art therapy, dance therapy, drama therapy and music therapy). Staff from partner countries will be sharing their experiences and gaining knowledge of how the arts can be used in different cultural and medical settings through attending training workshops in program countries.
