Art therapy for people with a psychosis-related diagnosis: practitioner guidelines

Our understanding of psychosis is changing. In 2020 the British Association of Art Therapists published The BAAT Guidelines on Art Therapy for People with a Psychosis-Related Diagnosis, informed by evidence and experts by experience. This course is an opportunity to dive deeply into these guidelines, consider their applicability to your practice, and inform further developments.

Saturdays 14th May & 18th June

*Open to all Qualified Professionals and Trainees*

 


The course represents an opportunity to reflect on The BAAT Guidelines in relation to one’s practice, along with other practitioners working across different settings relating to the treatment of people considered at risk of or diagnosed with psychosis. We will also consider what trauma-informed care looks like in these contexts, and how arts therapies feature in NICE guidelines. Your participation will help inform future manualising of The BAAT Guidelines in a way that will balance evidence-based practice with practitioner feedback and autonomy.
