"Art Therapy for an Art Therapist" was an experiential workshop presented at the 5thInternational Health Humanities Conference, Arts and Humanities for improving Social Inclusion, Education and Health: creative practice and mutuality – held in Seville (Spain), from September 15th to 17th, 2016. The main enquiry proposed to the audience was how to conduct an art therapy workshop for an art therapist. This key question addressed an important role in our teaching model, since it was designed to promote an autonomous and critical thinking among the participants to an almost Socratic style and to some more committed conjunctures according to Bain theory (2005: 118) and following the Experiential Learning (Kolb, Boyatzis & Mainemelis, 2000). The method used involved different phases and techniques, as a gymkhana or an art exhibition. The results pointed out the vision and thoughts of the ideal art therapists and the descriptions of the main capacities and abilities needed.
