After twenty years in marketing and educational Thanks for listening. firstname.lastname@example.org
consulting and ten years involved in the performance arts and working as a journalist/essayist... I have decided, at mid life, to think seriously about returning to university and graduate school for a MA in Creative Arts Therapies starting in the fall. My decision
will involve living apart from my husband, two
teenagers, friends and family, for 16 mo. for grad school and residency (6-8 hrs. travel time), a considerable financial investment, and, of
course, settling in to the disciplined life of the
academic with exams thesis etc. The prospect of being
involved in this pioneering field and helping others in a very meaningful way... is VERY
exciting, however it has been somewhat difficult for me
to find information about employment in the field.
I am from Ontario, Canada. Is it important that
arts therapists (dramatherapists) be mobile to
work in the field? Is private practice with
other compatible therapists a good option?
Arts therapies may be experiencing more growth due
to media and literature focus on the soul and women's feminist spirituality.
Do you think arts therapies will continue to
gain popularity in the future...in spite of certain governments cutting back on essential social and mental health services? I would be interested
in hearing from anyone who might have comments and
also from anyone who has returned to graduate school
in mid life.
Thanks for listening.
