Critical Pedagogies in the Arts Therapies

Necessary Dialogues. Resistance. Hopeful Action

Critical pedagogy is an approach to teaching and learning that asserts that the central purpose of education is to address inequality and oppression by identifying and working to transform relationships of power. The arts therapies, with their potential to elicit, contain, and direct emotion and insight, offer pathways to addressing systemic and internalized oppression. 

 

How do we contribute to equity and social justice through how we teach, supervise, mentor, write, and research in and through the arts therapies across educational contexts? When do we risk reinforcing oppression and, conversely,  how can our work increase access and inclusion? Whose voices are missing or ignored from how we understand health, illness, and care? How do we move from power over to power with and power within?
