Art Psychotherapy Practice

The most important aim of our course is to develop students' confidence and expertise in providing art therapy for people with different emotional and mental health needs. Students learn to become practitioners who can contribute to future service provision by working alongside clients who may be socially excluded, helping them make real changes in their lives. The course enables students to gain practical experience of at therapy in ways that are responsive to theory and practice in the field.
