There's no reason why you can't combine the two. You need to read research articles in both areas and also look specifically for research which has investigated creative arts in special/inclusive education. If there's nothing at all then you have a clear gap which your research can contribute to filling. It's more likely that some people have already investigated some aspects of this topic and then you will need to look for gaps within it or areas on which to build. Good luck!

I think that there are support groups on Facebook for people suffering from anxiety. If you're on Facebook, try a search. Some may allow you to join and post a link to your survey.

If you have a look at some theses in your discipline, you will probably find one or more sections in the methodology chapter where the writer discusses their epistemological and ontological position. I began this section of my research outline for my upgrade by explaining that my research was an exploratory qualitative study informed by social constructivism and interpretivism. Then I explained what these things mean, how they influenced my research design, methods of data collection and interpretation etc., and how they were complementary to the specific approach that I was taking.

Can I just say this is a nice succinct post that is very useful. Thankyou!


Are you being sarcastic? This is a spam post written in dreadful English and promoting an essay writing service that will supposedly help students cheat. However, if the sample essays on their website are anything to go by, any students who use their services will be wasting their money.

Maybe have a look at some of the literature on multi-modal discourse analysis. I don't know much about it, but I think it covers images.

If you want to do proofreading in English, learning the difference between advice and advise might be a start.

It's available as an ebook via my uni library catalogue and there are no restrictions on downloading, so I have downloaded the whole book. PM your email address and I'll send it to you.

Hi Zimmerman,


Sorry you are having such a hard time. You're not alone in this as you'll see if you Google something like 'PhD damages mental health' or 'PhD depression anxiety'. I would really urge you to go back to your GP but also to seek help from your university counselling service, or your GP may be able to refer you to counselling. I had some cognitive behavioural therapy for anxiety caused by trying to do a very stressful full-time job and a part-time PhD. It gave me some strategies to help me cope with things like not feeling able to leave the house or deal with difficult tasks at work.

In the meantime, be kind to yourself and try to spend time with people who are kind to you. Would you tell a friend who was feeling like this that they were stupid or a failure? Hopefully the answer is no, so there is no need to beat yourself up either.

A BSc is the minimum qualification needed to do the job. I don't know much about your field but I doubt the employers expected to give the job to someone who only had a BSc unless that person was a really strong candidate at interview. In my field a lot of job ads state that the minimum requirement is a teaching diploma but most jobs go to people with master's degrees and those people don't feel that they have taken a job which is beneath them. At least you'll be working in an academic environment with opportunities for networking and a chance to get a bit of teaching experience. I would make the most of it.

My university offers an MA in Drama Therapy. That could be a way to combine both your interests.

This one allows you to search for academic jobs, including post-docs, or sign up for alerts. It seems to cover all of Europe and a lot of other countries.

Nobody here can suggest a research topic for you. Do some reading. What are researchers in your field working on at the moment. What questions are coming out of their work? Find a question that interests you and then talk to your supervisor about whether that question is a feasible topic for a thesis.

Hi Candyfloss. Sorry you're having such a hard time. It's not unusual for PhD students to suffer from stress, anxiety and depression. Definitely contact the university counselling service because they can give you strategies to help you cope. Better to go now than risk it getting worse. Xx

According to their website, they have won 850 awards so clearly, metalizing, underlining well and not exceeding the beginning are the way to go. Shame about their inability to distinguish between plural and singular nouns.
