Mindfulness and the Arts Therapies: Theory and Practice


Product Description

Published UK, 2014
As mindfulness approaches are expanding into psychotherapy and health-related applications, and the arts therapies are continuing to bring positive results to a wide variety of clinical populations, this book explores the intersection of these two approaches. It explores the theoretical, clinical and training application of integrating mindfulness with all of the arts therapies, and includes cutting-edge contributions from neuroscience. Contributors - like Shaun McNiff, Pat Allen, Carolyn van Dort and Jared Kass - describe their pioneering work with diverse applications: cancer, trauma, chronic pain, substance abuse, severe mental illness, private practice, adolescents and clinical training.
