Vicky Karkou – Dance and the Arts in Psychotherapy: What is their Contribution for Wellbeing?

Dance, and the arts in general, are increasingly being used as means of improving psychological wellbeing. Professor Vicky Karkou’s inaugural lecture seeks to explore this topic, drawing upon diverse perspectives and research methodologies to discuss the ways in which arts psychotherapy interventions are used.
During her lecture she will reflect on the range of evidence that supports arts psychotherapies, identify gaps in the literature and suggest future directions in research and practice.
