I’m a graduate student studying art therapy at Notre Dame de Namur University and for my thesis project, I’m conducting research on the maker community and the potential psychological benefits from the maker identity. My study specifically looks at problem solving and resilience. My goal is to more fully understand the maker experience and hopefully open a conversation on broadening the art therapy profession to more fully embrace maker practices and materials in order to serve our clients in more inclusive and creative ways.
I’m looking for research participants who are 18 years or older, identify as a maker, and are willing to complete the survey. The survey takes approximately 30mins to complete and consists of two parts, the first being a multiple-choice survey and the second being a few short answer questions. If you are willing to participate please use the link below to complete the consent form and survey. Thank you for your interest and if you are willing I would appreciate it if you could pass this along to anyone who may be interested in participating in this research.
