Practical Art Therapy


Product Description

Published UK, 2004
This book seeks not to be prescriptive. `Therapy sessions cannot be scripted ahead of time,` warns the author, `but a collection of specific approaches can provide the framework for countless therapeutic interventions.` Topics are organized according to technique or media - including murals, collages, sculpture, mandalas and drawing - with an emphasis on everyday objects. The audience is wide and includes children and older people, and the therapeutic goals are equally diverse - issues, hopes, problems, conflicts, stress and the enhancement of reasoning, for example. This book is suitable for those new to the arts therapies field, practising art therapists, counsellors and social workers. 

Susan Buchalter is a senior therapist at the University Medical Centre at Princeton, USA.
