Handbook of Art Therapy Summary

Handbook of Art Therapy by Cathy A. Malchiodi (Trauma-Informed Practices Institute, Kentucky, USA)

This essential Handbook provides a complete and practical overview of art therapy: how it works, how it can be used, and with whom. Demonstrated are interventions for children, adolescents, and adults facing a variety of clinical problems and life challenges. Case-based chapters from leading practitioners illuminate major theoretical perspectives, including psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, developmental, and other approaches. Also examined is what current research in psychology and neuroscience can tell us about the scientific basis for art therapy. Discussing applications in individual psychotherapy, couple and family treatment, and group work, the Handbook includes over 100 samples of drawings and other artwork. The process of art therapy is illustrated in helping clients manage and cope with such problems as trauma, sexual abuse, developmental and learning disabilities, drug and alcohol misuse, serious mental illness, and medical illness. Appendices include descriptions of empirically supported approaches to art-based assessment, some of which are written by the instrument developers themselves.

Handbook of Art Therapy Reviews

'Finally, a comprehensive and user-friendly art therapy book for clinicians working in the trenches with challenging treatment populations! Cathy Malchiodi and her talented contributors have done an admirable job of providing therapists of all professional disciplines with highly creative art therapy techniques and strategies that can empower clients to liberate themselves from the clutches of their oppressive problems. Best of all, the book invites therapists to step out of the mental trap of 'therapy is serious business,' and think and play 'out of the box' with their clients. This is an outstanding book that will be useful to seasoned professionals as well as graduate students in all of the helping professions.' - Matthew D. Selekman, Illinois, USA

"This extraordinary volume is packed with state-of-the-art research and wisdom from renowned practitioners. Like the first edition, it will be a 'must read' for years to come for graduate students and practitioners in art therapy and allied fields, and for any therapist who uses art expression in clinical work. It is clinician friendly and eminently useful." - David A. Crenshaw, Rhinebeck Child and Family Center, Rhinebeck, New York, USA
