Calling all visual artists working in arts and health – share your perceptions

Emily White, a Health Psychology postgrad at UWE Bristol is calling for for arts practitioners to share how visual arts interventions can improve the psycho-social outcomes of adults with a physical health condition.

Emily White, Health Psychology student at UWE is calling out for any art-practitioners who would like to share their perceptions of working within the arts and health sector for her MSc Health Psychology Dissertation.

Emily’s dissertation research project aims to explore the perceptions of arts health practitioners on how visual arts interventions can improve the psycho-social outcomes of adults with a physical health condition.  Much evidence exists highlighting the efficacy of arts-health interventions and exploring the perspectives of patients who attend them.  However, little, if any research has been carried out to explore the perspectives of the practitioners themselves and Emily feels it is very important for their voice to be heard.

Emily has ethical approval from the Psychology Low Risk Review Board at UWE and would very much like to hear from arts practitioners over the age of 18 years old who use visual arts to support adults with a physical health condition.
