Research Participation Opportunities

April 15 – Graduate Research on Art Therapist Strategies with Veterans and PTSD

My name is Heather Lakin and I am currently a graduate student at Springfield College in the Art Therapy/Counseling program. As part of the degree requirements for a Master of Science, I am interviewing Art Therapists via survey, about their strategies for working with Veterans diagnosed with PTSD. I am respectfully inquiring to see if you would know any New Mexico Art Therapists that would be willing to participate in this study. The questionnaire will be conducted through Qualtrics. All materials, data, and participant’s identity will be kept confidential.

Their responses to this survey will be kept confidential and used only for the purpose of research. The expected amount of time for this survey is about 20 minutes. I would appreciate hearing of their own experience and receiving input from their work in the field with Veterans that have PTSD and if applicable to their families as well. Their participation in this research study will be very much appreciated.

If you know of any other Art Therapists that would be eligible, please feel free to send it to them!

If you would like any further information concerning pertinent questions about the research and any explanation about your rights as a research subject, it can be obtained from the Springfield College Graduate Office, (413) 748-3125.
