Senior Consultant Psychologist,

Warren Lett

Original degrees were taken in Arts and Education at Melbourne University. A Ph.D.in Counselling Psychology was completed at Berkeley, California, with a thesis on the relationships between creativity and the need for achievement.

Early work in Counselling psychology was in schools as a guidance officer, then a lecturer in counsellor training. In 1971 he began a twenty five year stay at La Trobe University, where he introduced the graduate counsellor training programme still operating in the School of Public Health, for counsellors and counselling psychologists. He occupied the academic role of Reader and was Dean of the School of Education 1982-85.

With a group of higher degree students, in the early nineties he began the development of the application of the creative arts as modes of knowing into therapeutic work. He then left the University scene, and in 1997, with his group, began the Melbourne Institute for Experiential and Creative Arts Therapy, Miecat became accredited as a graduate programme up to professional doctorate level, through the Higher Educations Acts in Victoria and Queensland. After Twenty years in the development of this work, he is now Emeritus Professor for the MIECAT Inc organisation. He continues to teach, give supervision and maintains a practice in Brunswick Street, Fitzroy

The transfer between teaching- training, research, writing, counselling practice and innovation has always been a feature of his professional work. He is Author or Editor of seven books, and numerous other reports and publications. The books, published in the period 1973- 2011, are entitled:

Counselling for What?
 I=m a Problem at School
The Creative Artist at Work
Creativity and Education
How the Arts Make a Difference in Therapy
The Arts of Resonance
An Inquiry into Making Sense of Our Lives

In his practice, he invites people to explore the patterns of experiencing in their ways of being, in order to try to make sense of what it is that they wish to understand. Whether with single persons or those in relationship, or in supervision groups, the purpose is always the same, to make sense of and find meaningfulness in their lives. This makes it possible to imagine, explore and adapt their lives into preferred or more valued ways of being.

There is no fixed procedure for this, and various modes of inquiry, creativity and intuitions, may be used to reach desired understandings and adaptations. Some examples of these ideas in practice are given in his newest book, An Inquiry into Making Sense of Our Lives (2011)
