Getting Going on Art Therapy Research... Dr Sarah Deaver at the International Art Therapy Practice/Research Conference

01 March 2019

“I am eager to participate in this exciting conference, to meet colleagues from around the world, and to learn new perspectives of our profession." Dr Sarah Deaver

Dr Sarah Deaver is presenting alongside Prof Lynn Kapitan and Dr Donna Betts as three art therapy researchers-educators responding to the same research problem with distinctly different perspectives. 

Seeing with diverse lenses helps us channel our passions, shift our thinking, refine the research purpose and approach, and examine newly uncovered assumptions. Attendees looking to jump-start their own research will gain new research design strategies.
