Art Therapy Practice Research Network (ATPRN) Symposium: Implications of the Power Threat Meaning Framework for art therapy practice and research

Various kinds of power play a role in all of our lives. The misuse of that power can have cruel and catastrophic effects on any of us. The Power Threat Meaning Framework summarises and integrates a great deal of evidence about the role of various kinds of power in people’s lives, the kinds of threat that misuse of power pose to us and the ways we have learnt to respond to those threats. The Framework also looks at how we make sense of these difficult experiences.

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.
