Scientifically sound, practically oriented: Documentation techniques for the art therapy practice

[Wissenschaftlich fundiert, praktisch orientiert: Dokumentationstechniken für die kunsttherapeutische Praxis]
October 8, 15, and 22 2021
DAGTP training

Quantitative documentation in art therapy is new territory and at the same time essential when it comes to scientific and societal recognition of the subject. In the workshop, in addition to an insight into the current state of research, selected documentation tools will be explained step by step and in a practice-oriented manner. Using a concrete example of application, the workshop will show how well-founded, art therapy documentation can look like.
On the one hand, the rating instrument for two-dimensional visual works (RizbA) will be explained, tested and evaluated for formal picture analysis. The questionnaire is freely available in the sense of Open Science and can be used in practice afterwards. On the other hand, forms of documentation are being tested that also cover art therapy and artistic processes. Possible applications of the tools will be discussed together with regard to objective documentation practice, data protection and ethical guidelines as well as communication.
The workshop is aimed at practicing art therapists who want to expand or structure their documentation techniques and are interested in a scientific foundation of art therapy. Previous knowledge is welcome, but not required. Participants are invited to bring their own visual works from their art therapy practice and use them as training material.
