Course summary

Whatever topic, students have their first supervisor in Art Psychotherapy and may have second in another department – Art, Educational Studies, Psychology, or Sociology, Students can meet supervisors regularly for discussion and guidance, and present their work to the Art Psychotherapy research student group.
