Vitenskapelig dokumentert effekt av kunstterapi og annen psykoterapeutisk behandling

Det påstås at alternativ behandling mangler vitenskapelig dokumentert effekt. Dette er en lite nyansert påstand som ikke stemmer.

Vitenskapelige metoder er allsidige og må være relevante til tilnærminger som benyttes: Naturvitenskapelige metoder er ofte lite egnet innen psykologi og psykoterapi, som krever egne forskningsdesign.

At noe ikke er såkalt ‘vitenskapelig’ dokumentert er heller ikke synonymt med manglende effekt. Nye tilnærminger utvikles, erfares og justeres. Forskning tar tid, erfaringer må systematiseres, forskningsmidler må foreligge.

Det finnes en god del internasjonal forskning rundt kunstterapi og annen psykoterapeutisk behandling og dets effekt. Her er noen av dem.
