This book explores the transformative power of the arts therapies in areas stricken by conflict, political unrest, poverty or natural disaster and discusses how and why expressive arts therapy works. It looks at the ways arts therapies can be used to engage community consciousness and improve social conditions whilst taking into account the issues that arise within different contexts and populations. Leading expressive arts therapy practitioners give inspiring accounts of their work, from using poetry as a tool in trauma intervention with Iraqi survivors of war and torture to setting up storytelling workshops to aid the integration of Ethiopian Hewish immigrants to Israel.
