  1. Good Stepping Stone


    I found this course interesting reading and it was very helpful to have some background knowledge before completing the BAAT foundation course.

  2. 4

    Excellent for learning the development of Art Therapy in the UK and its spread world wide. How the roots and various strands have been woven together, the main proponents, theories concepts and difficulties faced in developing Art Therapy as an autonomous profession .
    On the down side the Grammar needs reviewing as it gives the wrong impression to the reader and detracts from the professionalism of the content.
    Also Not the right course if you are seeking to learn specific ways of producing art in a therapeutic way.
    I thoroughly enjoyed the content and would recommend this course to others looking for an overview of the art therapy model.
