This is going to form the basis of a whole new session focussing on the links between art teaching a wellbeing. A really useful book.
Brilliant insight and good for students to develop and understand Art Therapy concepts.
Beautiful and simple examples of the impact of arts in healthcare
Using therapeutic approaches & use of creativity in practice.
Within the South African society with many previously disadvantaged people, existing racial divides and language barriers, using art therapy becomes essential in working with people as art is not restricted to one cultural grouping, but transcends these barriers constructed by people.
Interesting content. Used by some of my ITE art specialist students as supplemental reading for their own research.
A good, accessible introduction to the subject of art therapy with an overview of the history, guidance on different practical considerations and some helpful case illustrations as well as clear references for further reading. Not as in-depth in terms of clinical practice and reflection as other texts, more of a practical introduction to the field and career path.
Art therapy was not appropriate for this course.
The text provides useful insight regarding the design of art therapy interventions with diverse client groups. It is a highly recommended book for academics, practitioners and clinicians
A little too specialist for the art programmes we offer.
