New Developments in Expressive Arts Therapy

by Stephen K. Levine (Editor), Ellen G. Levine (Editor)

This collection reflects on the theory and application of expressive arts today in therapy, education, research and social and ecological change.

Bringing the understanding of expressive arts into its contemporary theoretical framework, the book reveals the expansion of the field from its initial focus on therapy alone into a diverse range of other areas of interest to therapists, educators, researchers and those interested in working for social and ecological change. The book also contains a selection of discursive writing, poetry and visual art, highlighting the importance of keeping artistic creativity at the heart of the field.

With contributions from pioneering arts therapists, this will be vital reading for arts therapists and students in the field today.
