Art Therapy Based Psychoeducation

This course is for qualified Art Therapists and Art Therapy Trainees only. Evidence is mounting that patient education can both increase the effectiveness of psychological therapy interventions by strengthening the therapeutic alliance and be a valid brief intervention in its own right. Psychoeducational approaches which are overly academic or cognitively based can be less effective in situations where learning and attention can be compromised by emotional distress or developmental issues.

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.
