This programme, the first MRes in Art Psychotherapy both nationally and internationally, allows qualified and experienced art therapists to explore clinical practice through critical examination of theory, to gain a wide knowledge of Research Methods and Evidence Based Practice, and to develop practical research skills. A combination of taught courses in Methods of Clinical and Cultural Analysis, Research and Evidence Based Practice will, together with the production of related written elements, equip you to undertake research and to contribute to the evidence base and the discipline and its practices. The MRes in Art Psychotherapy will prepare you for MPhilPhD study. By the end of the programme, you will be able to: ?identify issues of clinical, cultural, visual, and contextual significance in Art Psychotherapy ?review clinical practice through an in-depth knowledge and critical appraisal of Art Therapy and related literature ?demonstrate knowledge of quantitative and qualitative Research Methods and their practical application to Art Psychotherapy ?identify and implement Evidence Based Practice in Art Psychotherapy ?show a development as a reflexive practitioner able to appraise your work as a clinician and a researcher, each in terms of the other. What you study Please note: the following outlines the part-time programme. Full-time and international students will participate in the taught courses with part-time students and in addition have an individual programme tailored to their particular needs and research interests. The MRes is aimed primarily at working clinicians who wish to undertake research. The taught courses therefore take place during two-day intensive teaching blocks that occur twice per term for the first four terms of the part-time programme. This structure, combined with independent study, allows the MRes to be integrated with the employment demands of the NHS, Social and Education Services, making it easier to get study leave and financial support from your employer. The structure also helps Art Therapists from outside London and the South East of England to study for the MRes. The MRes has five discrete courses. Two are taught and three comprise differing areas of independent study that lead to the production of the three major pieces of written work. These courses are: ?Methods of Clinical and Cultural Analysis ?Research Methods and Evidence-Based Practice ?Case Study ?Essay ?Dissertation Methods of Clinical and Cultural Analysis: This course will be taught during the first year of the part-time programme. It involves seminars where you present a case which has been set in the context of the literature, and lectures that address both the profession and its practices in terms of its history, politics and cultural location. There will also be lectures and student-led exploration of the role of art, aesthetics and psychoanalysis in the contemporary clinical practice of Art Therapy. Research Methods and Evidence-Based Practice: This course, taught at the end of the first and the start of the second years, describes qualitative and quantitative research methodologies, setting these in the debate surrounding Evidence-Based Practice. It explores the range of research methods which can usefully address, and have addressed, the various clinical, contextual and visual considerations in Art Therapy as well as considering the practical implementation of Evidence-Based Practice initiatives such as clinical audit and the development of clinical guidelines. Case Study The research-based Case Study (8,000-10,000 words) enables you to explore your specialist area of clinical practice through description of casework that is set in the context of a critical appraisal of the relevant literature. Essay The Essay (5,000-6,000 words) on Art, Aesthetics and Psychoanalysis allows you to undertake a critical exploration of a selected area of literature and visual experience. This is presented orally, in seminars during the firs
