For the Bachelor degree there is a pre-selection based on artistic skills or movement
Course Philosophy and Main Theoretical Approaches:
There are three lines, all based on the eclectics theories:
1. The conceptual learning line, where theory is central.
2. The integral assignment, where usually work practice is central
3. The skills learning line, where especial attention is paid to the use of artistic skills and to the methodical skills.
First year preparation training is arranged according to five competencies essential to the therapist: designing treatment plans, executing treatment plans, research, innovation and functioning within a professional organization.
Main study: the student builds competence around theoretical knowledge, personal insight and practical skills; for one year students have an internship as therapist in an organization with the support of a supervisor.
