(UPDATED: May 25, 2016)

My name is Melissa Mountain and I am an Art Therapist practicing in Southern Alberta. I am completing a small research study, as part of my registration as a Psychologist, regarding the experiences of art therapists.

Subject Line: Calling All Canadian Art Therapists,
You are being invited to participate in a study entitled So, You Want to Borrow my Crayons? Art Therapists in Dialogue with Non-Art Therapist Colleagues that is being conducted by Melissa AG Mountain and Dr. Dawn McBride.

The purpose of this research project is to survey Canadian art therapists regarding their experiences with requests to share art therapy with other colleagues. Art therapists will be asked about their thoughts, feelings, and actions when faced with a requests to “teach” colleagues about art therapy when the colleagues do not have any formal training in this modality. 
Please see the link below for the information consent and survey associated with this research study.
