Handbook of Art Therapy - Cathy Malchiodi


Product Description

Published USA, 2011 (2nd edition)
The thirty chapters in this substantial text are written predominantly by North American practitioners. The text brings together the theory and practice of art therapy through numerous case and visual illustrations of how children, adolescents, adults, groups and families can benefit from the opportunity to experience art expression as part of their psychotherapy or counselling. Each section begins with a concise introduction providing useful background information and highlighting key themes to be addressed. Case-based chapters illuminate major theoretical perspectives, including psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioural, developmental, and other clinical approaches. The book is unique in its breadth and depth of topics, and will serve as a highly practical text for practitioners and students. The new edition includes chapters on intervening with domestic violence survivors and bereaved children, and expanded coverage of neuroscience, cultural diversity and ethics.
