Program description

Master’s Degree in Art Therapy and Art Education for Social Inclusion

The relevance of an official university degree for this area of knowledge derives from the need to articulate quality training that, responding to an existing social demand, allows the responsible and well-founded development (theoretically and methodologically) of Art Therapy and art as a way of intervention and social inclusion in different areas. Artistic activity, by integrating the different dimensions of the human being (cognitive, affective, social ...), is an important instrument in the development of adaptive strategies and resources within an interdisciplinary framework. The artistic language and the creative processes represent a significant work path for human development and psychological well-being. Its use in psychosocial, clinical, educational (formal or non-formal) and cultural contexts opens up a wide area of work and research. The common denomination "Art Therapy", favors the delimitation of the field of knowledge, allows to establish common action criteria and facilitates agreements and international exchanges. Art therapy, within multidisciplinary teams, is especially powerful in areas where verbal language is insufficient; Numerous experiences indicate that Art Therapy can be a way of social inclusion, by helping human development both emotionally and cognitively.
