International Centre for Arts Psychotherapies Training (ICAPT)
Developing effective approaches for arts psychotherapies practice in mental health.
Arts psychotherapists use a non-verbal medium to help link talking and feeling in powerful and focused ways. It is of no surprise that arts can promote mental health and wellbeing, however the models of practice need to be applied in the right way with the knowledge of technical aspects of implementation informed by evidence.
The International Centre for Arts Psychotherapies Training in Mental Health (ICAPT) was established in 2011 to build upon the excellence of arts psychotherapies clinical expertise and to offer training for evidence-based models more widely. The aim of the centre is to provide a better experience for patients where interventions are guided but not prescriptive and are informed by the latest research without losing the intuition and innovation of which arts psychotherapists are known for.
The priorities of the centre are to:
This is the first centre of its kind, accessible to all arts psychotherapists with a focus on evidence-based practice for clinical groups and will help to offer a way forward for arts psychotherapists refining clinical methods verbally and non-verbally for specific clinical populations.
