Color therapy courses teach students about the way that colors affect people's emotions. There are many courses available; some are located at schools and others are self-study, so the best color therapy courses for you will depend on your interests in the subject. If you are looking to add color therapy to your professional work, you probably want to consider attending courses in color theory and applications at a college or university, but if you are simply interested in learning about the subject, an online self-study course might be right for you. There are also color therapy courses offered in art therapy training programs for individuals interested in practicing art therapy with clients.
If you are interested in working as a practitioner in color therapy, it is recommended that you choose courses at a school with qualified instructors to teach you. You do not have to be licensed to practice color therapy with clients, but the more you learn about the subject from those already working in the field, the more qualified you will be to work with clients yourself. In these courses, you will learn about the different ways that colors affect mood and how it can be changed based upon the use of color. These courses are generally offered at alternative medicine schools that utilize energy and chakras in their work.
There are many self-study color therapy courses available if you are interested in learning more about the subject on your own. Many of these courses are free of charge and allow you to peruse the material at your own pace. This is a good option if you want to learn about color therapy as a hobby or to enrich your current work, but most likely you will not become a professional in color therapy by taking these types of courses.
Art therapists often utilize color therapy in their work with clients, so there are color therapy courses available within some art therapy programs. These programs usually require admittance into the program in order to attend, but this would be a good option for you if you are interested in combining color and art therapy. Look for an art therapy program that interests you, fits your budget, and is in a location that you can attend. Accredited art therapy programs allow you to easily become licensed as an art therapist when you complete the program.
