THANK YOU! I am glad you have read at least one of the dozens of posts I have made here regarding the necessity of those wishing to do therapeutic work with art having proper training.
I would offer the following advice for both your benefit (so you don't get in over your head, therapeutically), and the benefit of the participants in your class. Make sure that you give an explicit disclaimer in your marketing and in the first session that you are not a therapist and this is not therapy. I would use words like "class" or "seminar" to describe what you do and frame it within an art teaching context, with a discussion component. It may be tempting to describe what you plan to do using more therapeutic language, but this may convey an innacurate perception of what you do, and be (as you know) both inaccurate and unethical.
