M.P.S. - Art Therapy
The MPS Art Therapy Program developed from a single undergraduate course in collaboration with the Bronx Psychiatric Center in New York City, over three decades ago. The undergraduate certificate program, guided by its founder, Estelle Bellomo, expanded and developed affiliations in a variety of settings and gained a reputation for excellence in both academic and clinical training. Subsequent changes in the field of art therapy made a master’s degree program the natural progression, which was initiated in 2001. The program is approved by the American Art Therapy Association, as well as New York State’s Department of Education and is an educational provider for the Licensure in Creative Art Therapy (LCAT) credential by the New York State Office of Professions, and as such meets the education standards of the art therapy profession. Curriculum Students are trained in the psychodynamic roots of the art therapy profession along with contemporary theories of human development, creativity, and related fields. Students analyze changes in physical, cognitive, artistic and social-emotional development across the lifespan. Courses work in tandem with two years of internship and special projects in clinical, academic, medical and community settings. First year coursework involves training in fundamental theories, methods and evidence-based art therapy research. This includes an in-depth academic and experiential exploration of the therapeutic use of art materials with specific populations. The second year focuses on specialization, professional development and practical application. Students develop a clinically oriented thesis, which includes designing and conducting research that follows ethical guidelines. In addition, students choose from two specialization tracks: Addictionology or Trauma.
