Beginning Research in the Arts Therapies: A Practical Guideby Gary Ansdell
Synopses & Reviews
In this practical guide to beginning a research project in the arts therapies, the authors tackle everything from writing an initial funding proposal and finding a title, to collecting, preparing and analyzing research data. Each chapter contains general research guidelines and ends with a hints and tips summary of material covered.
Book News Annotation:
Ansdell and Pavlicevic, research associates at a London music therapy center, explain the research process in four stages, outlining what students and practitioners need to plan, know, and do to research a dissertation or report. Using two fictional case studies—art therapist Franz Mozarella and music therapist Suzie Kaftan—they present both qualitative and quantitative approaches to research, taking the pragmatic line that the choice of methodology depends on what a therapist is setting out to do. Their chatty guide aims most of all to demystify the research process for art therapists intimidated by its stern face. Distributed by Taylor & Francis.
