ART THERAPY LITERATURE REVIEW
Credit points: 15
In this subject students will examine, discuss and critique the literature from art therapy, psychology and research methods as it relates to art therapy practice and the Final Project undertaken in Semester 2 (PHE5AFP). Diverse research methodologies will be presented within the context of the relevant epistemological frameworks. Students will strengthen their critical appraisal skills as they analyse texts for quality, strengths and weaknesses. In particular, students will focus on the literature from art therapy related to their Masters year placement as this will provide the foundation for writing a literature review as phase one of the Final Project and for phase 2 in Semester 2.
