Clinicians' Use of Art in their Practice

About the Project

Dear Colleague:

We would like your help in documenting the experience of mental health professionals using art in their clinical practice. If you use or have used art as a therapeutic intervention in your practice, we invite you to participate in our study. We welcome licensed credential holders in their respective mental health professions to participate.

This study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. If you decide to participate, you will be agreeing to approximately an hour-long interview, with a possible follow-up interview, both of which will be taped. The interviews may be conducted face-to-face or by phone. We are committed to maintaining confidentiality and your identity will be masked using pseudonyms to protect your confidentiality. You will also be filling out a brief demographic questionnaire that will be used for the interview.

If you decide to participate, please click on the following link to read the informed consent form, fill out the demographic questionnaire and provide contact information:
