ATPRN: Art Therapy Practice Research Network

“The ATPRN is a UK wide group of practising art therapists who collaborate on practice-led research and evaluation ventures. It involves meeting and working with other ATs who are grappling with similar issues. The ATPRN is aimed at helping practitioners evaluate services and produce publishable research evidence for Art Therapy”.  (http://www.baat.org/atprn.html)
