We offer opportunities for students who want to pursue research in art psychotherapy.

For MPhil study, you usually register for research by written thesis (although there are also possibilities for research based on a written element and studio practice).

Whatever your topic, you have your first supervisor in Art Psychotherapy and may have your second in another department – ArtEducational StudiesPsychology, or Sociology, for example.

You meet your supervisors regularly for discussion and guidance, and present your work to the Art Psychotherapy research student group.

You also attend the Goldsmiths Research Methods Training Course.

Supervision is currently available in the following areas:

  • art therapists and their art
  • cross-cultural issues
  • evidence-based practices
  • group work
  • history and development of the professions in the UK and internationally
  • occupational choice, career development and role change of arts therapists and arts therapy trainees
  • clinical work with various client populations

Current research topics include:

  • key issues in art psychotherapy with the blind
  • the creative experience inside and outside an art psychotherapy group
  • the image as an assessment tool with children who have an autistic spectrum disorder
  • thinking about art with adults who have learning disabilities
  • art therapists’ working environments

You'll be assessed by a thesis and viva voce.
