ROOM 810

The viability and future of expressive art therapies depends on demonstrating that our treatment yields positive outcomes, equal to—or better than—other treatments. Few research studies are rigorous enough to support what we witness daily in our treatment sessions: inarguable positive gains. We should be conducting outcome studies, yet few masters level training programs prepare students to be researchers who design, conduct, and publish research. This half-day workshop is open to all expressive arts therapists, faculty, and students who seek to learn basic quantitative research methodology by using visual images in a fun, hands-on, interactive way. Partially inspired by Knapp's (1996) Learning Statistics through Playing Cards, but based on visual images of artwork, you will engage in an approach to research that is full of surprises, inspires imaginative thinking, and creates a dynamic learning experience that has practical applications to your daily clinical work.
