An innovative guide to the practice of art therapy
Since 1978, Judith Aron Rubin's Child Art Therapy has become the
classic text for conducting art therapy with children. Twenty-five
years later, the book still stands as the reference for mental
health professionals who incorporate art into their practice. Now,
with the publication of this fully updated and revised Twenty-Fifth
Anniversary Edition, which includes a DVD that illustrates art
therapy techniques in actual therapy settings, this pioneering
guide is available to train, inform, and inspire a new generation
of art therapists and those seeking to introduce art therapy into
their clinical practice.
The text illustrates how to:
* Set the conditions for creative growth, assess progress, and set
goals for therapy
* Use art in individual, group, and family situations, including
parent-child pairings, mothers' groups, and adolescent groups
* Work with healthy children and those with disabilities
* Guide parents through art and play
* Talk about art work and encourage art production
* Decode nonverbal messages contained in art and the art-making
* Use scribbles, drawings, stories, poems, masks, and other methods
to facilitate expression
* Understand why and how art therapy works
Along with the useful techniques and activities described,
numerous case studies taken from Rubin's years of practice add a
vital dimension to the text, exploring how art therapy works in the
real world of children's experience. Original artwork from clients
and the author illuminate the material throughout. Written by an
internationally recognized art therapist, Child Art Therapy,
Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Edition is a comprehensive guide for
learning about, practicing, and refining child art therapy.
