An effective and vibrant profession continues to grow and challenge itself to improve outcomes for children, young people and families - feedback from some of the committed Arts Therapists currently teaching or studying on the diploma course:

'I learned so much teaching with Mary Rose on the Assessment module for the diploma. It made me realise just how much of what we do as art therapists is actually continual assessment'  Art Therapist & Tutor, Bobby Lloyd

'Thank you very much for a very informative module! It was great to meet both tutors and I was very impressed with all your preparation and professionalism in running the course.' Art Therapist, Student

'As well as informative you managed to make the module warm and entertaining too! Looks like there's a great mix of like minded art therapists bringing their skills and experiences too!' Art Therapist, Student

'Thank you for such an enjoyable and stimulating time on the BAAT diploma, I have felt enthused and re-energised ever since!' Art Therapist, Student

'Thank you for an incredibly nurturing and insightful module on the course.' Art Therapist, Student

'So far the course has been very relevant to my role and will help me in all aspects of my practice, especially in areas that I was previously unclear about, such as current legislation.' Art Therapist, Student

'There was a great mixture of theoretical and practical training that was delivered excellently by experienced art therapists who were able to break everything down into simplified sections and answer all our queries. I'm really looking forward to the next module!' Art Therapist, Student
