The Phototherapy Educational Workshop is an exceptional opportunity to follow a PhotoTherapy and Therapeutic Photography Educational Workshop in Belgium, France and Switzerland, where Phototherapy isn’t yet well known. However, it is widely practiced in Anglo-Saxon countries, Italy and Israel. Emilie Danchin is a Fine Art photographer with a degree in philosophy, and a psychotherapist. She is trained in PhotoTherapy Techniques (Judy Weiser, PhotoTherapy Center, Vancouver), in Relational psychosomatic (Sami-Ali, CIPS, Paris) and in Ericksonian hypnosis and Brief therapy (Milton Erickson Institute, T. Melchior, Brussels). She is an expert in PhotoTherapy, Therapeutic and Social Action Photography techniques, all of them she encompasses in her own Relational Model and Projective Methodology. She has been invited to the 2nd edition of the international Festival of Phototherapy (Perugia, Italy) in 2013. Referent in the field for the French-speaking countries, she started teaching in 2014 in Belgium, France and Switzerland.
