The Phototherapy Department at Musrara was initiated in 2003. A pioneer in the field, it is the first department of its kind in Israel to train therapists who use photography as treatment.
The program takes place at the Musrara School, which combines artistic and social aspects. Students at the Phototherapy Department enjoy the vibrant artistic atmosphere of the school and use its facilities and advanced photography labs.
The studies enable fruitful ties with students from other departments and participation in the school activities such as the multidisciplinary art festival Musrara Mix. Students can participate in a number of courses of the Photography Department, subject to availability and the department policy.
The Phototherapy Department at Musrara is distinct in that its program includes practical experience in phototherapy, with professional supervision. Due to the esteemed work of students and graduates of the department, there is a growing demand for additional professionals specializing in phototherapy, and graduates of the department are well integrated in various institutions across the country.
We, the faculty of the department, believe in creating an encouraging environment for the personal development of each and every student, by means of a combination of creative development, photography skills, comprehensive theoretical studies and practical work in the field, with the supervision of experienced, senior therapists. We combine knowledge in therapy with practical tools for applying phototherapy, the development of photographic skills, art and a multicultural outlook. These all enrich and develop the student in order to equip him or her for the path they eventually choose to go down.
