LEVEL 6 DIPLOMA IN ART THERAPY WITH CHILDREN & YOUNG PEOPLE 

FOR QUALIFIED UK & INTERNATIONAL ART THERAPISTS 

NEW COHORT STARTING IN MAY 2021

BLENDED ONLINE DELIVERY 


The rising incidence of mental health issues among children and young people has become an acute source of concern. The current pandemic has increased this concern and growing evidence highlights a need for accessible and effective interventions that can engage this client group.  Accessing art therapy has never been such a pressing need. 

Additionally, clinicians must work within an increasingly complex legal framework and ensure that their practice complies with statutory requirements.  During the current pandemic, art therapists have developed flexible approaches online, by phone, or in-person with PPE with Children and Young People.  This has also presented new challenges when managing Safeguarding issues.  Children and young people sometimes struggle to put their feelings into words and professionals often report that art and other creative therapies can have significant impact on impulse control, wellbeing and emotional literacy.

To respond to the current circumstances and to this changing landscape of art therapy with children and young people, the British Association of Art Therapists now offers an externally accredited course, specifically tailored to enable arts therapists to meet these challenges. Applicants must be HCPC registered Art Therapists or International Art Therapists.
