Peer Review Training (M)

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.
