Peer Review Training - Online Training

A key task of the British Association of Art Therapists is to act as the learned society for the profession and the International Journal of Art Therapy: Inscape is the primary record of this activity. The validity of what appears in the journal rests on sound peer review with the BAAT membership forming the basis of that peer system. The development of art therapy theory that is truly representative of contemporary practice rests on the widest possible involvement of BAAT members.

Any art therapist (member of BAAT) with three years’ post qualifying experience who has undertaken the peer review training is eligible for this role.


As a peer reviewer you will be a vital part of the intellectual life of the profession, contributing the development of art therapy literature and supporting the development of our evidence base. You will read a wide range of submissions from the UK and abroad.


You will be gaining an insight into current thinking in the profession, developing your critical analytical and writing skills and adding to your CPD portfolio. The commitment you give will be flexible; you will decide on each occasion whether to accept an invitation to take on a review. This means the role can easily be fitted around other commitments.


This one-day training will start with an introduction to the general concept of peer review, address the strengths and limitations of the peer review process, and outline how the role works within the IJAT: Inscape structure. We will explain what we expect from a review, address common issues relating to peer review and answer any questions that you may have.


The day will count as a certified CPD activity.


Your course fee will be refunded on submission of your first peer review for IJAT.
