Art therapists work with children, young people, adults, and older people in a range of health, education, social care, advocacy, and community services.
As a career, art therapy offers an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. It combines therapeutic expertise, evidence based research, social engagement, resourcefulness, and creative ingenuity.
Combining experiential learning, clinical placements, seminars, workshops and studio practices you will have the opportunity to work in conjunction with cultural and heritage partners, advocacy organisations, and social enterprise initiatives. Clinical supervision will be available to support your training and professional development within a variety of practical settings.
Art therapy is a catalyst for the arts being of service to people and communities in need. This course will train you to become both a skilled clinical practitioner and a social innovator, with the aim of transforming lives and promoting social inclusivity.
This course is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) for the purpose of providing eligibility to apply for registration with the HCPC as an arts therapist (Art Therapist or Art Psychotherapist).
