Advanced Practice developments at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh: deepening learning & clinical skills, developing leadership & research in innovative practice for Arts Therapists

Queen Margaret University, Division of Occupational Therapy and Arts Therapies is supporting the development of:

PgCert, PgDip and MSc in Advanced Practice for registered  Arts Therapists

Part-time and full-time routes available

The aim of this new programme is to support practicing Arts Therapists to meet the NHS objectives of developing Advanced Practitioners in the workplace who meet Level 7 of the Career Framework for Health (Skills for Health 2006) where their professionalism is underpinned by the four pillars of practice: Clinical Practice, Facilitating Learning, Leadership and Research.

The programme will offer Continuous Professional Development credit bearing learning where the student can complete their studies at three exit points. It is designed to attract registered Arts Therapists (Art, Dance, Drama and Music), and some modules may be attractive to practitioners from other fields eg Nursing, Occupational Therapy etc.

In this period of professional uncertainty the programme will encourage originality of thinking, initiate innovative health and social care projects, thus developing confident practitioners who will be agents of change. Arts therapists are increasingly required to seek new methods of application of their skills, adapting them to education, health and community settings. This programme will support students to increase their knowledge and skills relevant to the current challenging employment culture. Elements of the learning experience will include:

  • Deepening the understanding and skills of movement awareness and the nonverbal dialogue to further enhance the client/therapist relationship
  • Design, implementation and evaluation of a clinical  intervention
  • Exploration of key areas to deepen and advanced therapeutic skills
  • Introduce new approaches to Arts based supervision and reflective practice
  • Further application of research skills in clinical practice

Expected start date: January 2015

Acting Programme leader: Susan Scarth MCAT RDMP CMA

Visiting lecturers will be drawn from senior practitioners of Art Psychotherapy, Dramatherapy, Dance Movement Psychotherapy and Music Therapy
