ART THERAPY WITH ADULTS
Credit points: 15
In this subject students will learn the stages of normal adult development, examine and critique the diagnosis of a range of mental health disorders according to the DSM IV-TR, and develop skills in art therapy assessment appropriate to these populations. They will also develop an awareness of the complexities of working with clients from cross-cultural backgrounds and with diverse values. Students will gain an understanding of the psycho-bio-social factors involved in wellbeing, mental health and ill health amongst adult populations. Students will also demonstrate their knowledge and increased art therapy skills in working with diverse populations of adults.
