UQAT creates new schools of art therapy, psychoeducation


The Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue recently announced the creation of two new schools dedicated respectively to art therapy and psychoeducation. The École d’art-thérapie will be headed by UQAT Professeure Sophie Boudrias. The school will strengthen recognition for the art therapy profession as it pursues its mission to create, mobilize, and transmit knowledge and skills to its community of students as they work toward qualifying for the professional practice. The École de psychoéducation will be led by UQAT Professeur Alexandre Beaulieu. The school will raise awareness and advance the development of the field of psychoeducation. The establishment of this school will also enable UQAT to forge more direct partnerships in the field.
