The Body Psychotherapy (Top-Up) course at Anglia Ruskin University will help you receive a high level of academic and research input as you work towards a clinically-focused dissertation on an aspect of Body Psychotherapy.

About

The Body Psychotherapy (Top-Up) course at Anglia Ruskin University will give you the chance to work on a substantive piece of academic research, with access to our resources and internationally renowned therapies staff.

You’ll be assigned an academic supervisor to support your work, and will be able to attend our research methodologies training. You can also attend lectures and seminars from our MA Dramatherapy and MA Music Therapy courses, which will give you further insight into arts therapies theory and practice.

Our teaching team includes internationally recognised researchers as well as practising arts therapists. You’ll work alongside other students from our Music Therapy and Dramatherapy courses, broadening your understanding of the field. You won’t need to undertake further clinical placements, meaning you can focus on your academic studies.

Careers

Our course will advance your practice of body psychotherapy, whether you work in private practice or for health or education providers in the UK or overseas. It will equip you with crucial research skills that, according to the QAA Benchmarking for Counselling and Psychotherapy, are required by all counsellors and psychotherapists to '…enable them to read and interpret research evidence related to practice…', '…monitor and evaluate both individual practice and the work of a service or team…' and 'contribute to the developing knowledge and evidence base for their profession'.
