This edition of The Handbook of Art Therapy is thoroughly revised and updated and includes new sections on neurobiological research, and a current review of literature and contemporary practice. It provides a comprehensive introduction to the field of art therapy in a variety of different settings.
Caroline Case and Tessa Dalley draw on their experience of teaching and practicing art therapy, concentrating on what art psychotherapists actually do, where they practice, and how and why art therapy is effective. First-hand accounts of the experience of art therapy from both therapists and clients are used throughout, enriching the discussion of subjects including:
The art therapy room
Art and psychoanalysis
Art therapy and creativity
Working with groups in art therapy
Art therapy with individual patients
This straight-forward and highly practical handbook will be invaluable not only as an introduction to the profession but also as a reference for students of art psychotherapy both during and after their training.
