The center

The Center of Personal Development through Art was founded in 1998 by Fofi Trigazi. After 20 years of operation in the Mental Health sector it was renamed Center for Psychotherapy through Art Connective Drama (CePsyArt Connective Drama).

CePsyArt Connective Drama provides services to children, adolescents, grown-ups, couples, families and professional groups.

The core of its Therapeutic Approach is Drama Therapy, Play Therapy and the Psychodynamic Approach to Psychotherapy.

It also provides Creative Supervision to Mental Health Professionals, by supporting the professional’s development in every stage of his professional path.

This idea was based on the thought that, although Therapies through art are separate scientific branches, their common reference and connection point is that the starting point of Art is man’s need for expression, and that all humans without any preparation have the ability to express themselves creatively.
