I first took Dr. Nadine Naber’s How to Design a Liberated Research Project to develop my own ideas for research. I was so invigorated by the process she shared, as well as her infectious enthusiasm and vast knowledge, that I quickly recommended she teach a workshop for the Master of Arts in Art Therapy & Counseling department at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), where I am an Assistant Professor, Adj. The students loved her workshop, and I heard one say, “I wasn’t excited about doing research until now!” I am looking forward even more to teaching art therapy graduate projects this semester now that students are coming in with newly invigorated motivation to do research that matters.
