In a multidisciplinary setting or team, competing perspectives and principles can be challenging to negotiate, but supportive working relationships and effective collaboration can ultimately lead to an enriched experience and innovative outcomes for both professionals and clients. Drawing on their diverse experiences, art, music, drama, play and dance therapists emphasise the valuable results that their respective disciplines can produce when applied in settings ranging from schools to hospices, in collaboration with behaviour therapists, teachers, occupational therapists, speech therapists and other practitioners. The book provides a unique perspective on the common issues faced by arts therapists when working with other professionals and will assist arts therapists in promoting their profession to co-workers and clients.
For those with mobility and communication challenges, arts therapies can be especially significant and rewarding as a means of self-expression and engaging with others. This book provides practical guidance on multimodal and archetypal arts therapy approaches adapted specifically for a physical disability context. Practical strategies and interventions are given, alongside case studies from individual and group arts therapy sessions. The author acknowledges the challenges of working with clients with physical disabilities, such as physical assistance in using resources, subtleties in communication of preferences and the need for extra members of staff, and gives clear guidance for accessible and effective sessions. This is essential reading for any arts therapist wanting a tailored approach to meeting the needs of people with physical disabilities, with a focus on person-centred and strengths-based methods. In addition, all frameworks covered are also adaptable for other client groups.
Discourse on small business start-up in the UK, advanced by the British government and other agencies, is one of encouraging enterprise, innovation and entrepreneurship. This is especially the case with respect to women. It is however suggested that men are around two and a half times more likely to be entrepreneurs than women (UK Global Entrepreneurship Report, 2006). Women are presented as reluctant entrepreneurs, yet many women dream of starting-up either as a means to combine work and family life or as an escape from being organised by others. This study explores the process of start-up through ethnography and interview data and posits that it is in the stages before business begins that start-up becomes problematic for women. The cumulative effects of seemingly unimportant but negative everyday exchanges erode women's will to start. These exchanges range from women's business not being taken seriously and masculine symbolism in the self- employment agency, to the emotional labour (Hochschild, 1993) or harmonising in the home demanded by family and friends. Women's business only becomes possible in carnivalesque spaces as a transgressive act.
A young couple begins their married lives on the eve of the Civil War. The story of the poor people of the American South who never owned a slave nor planned to fight a war.
In 1934, Lamb in His Bosom won the Pulitzer Prize for Literature. It was the first novel by a Georgia author to win a Pulitzer, soon followed by Gone With the Wind in 1937. In fact, Lamb was largely responsible for the discovery of Gone With the Wind; after reading Miller's novel, Macmillan editor Harold S. Latham sought other southern authors, and found Margaret Mitchell.
Miller was fascinated by the other Old South-the poor people of the south Georgia backwoods, who never owned a slave or planned to fight a war. The story of Cean and Lonzo, a young couple who begin their married lives two decades before the Civil War, this is a fascinating account of social customs and material realities among settlers of the Georgia frontier. At the same time, Lamb in His Bosom transcends regional history as Miller's quietly lyrical prose style pays poignant tribute to a woman's life lived close to nature-the nature outside her and the nature within.
There is increasing pressure on therapists to provide details of structured assessments and to report therapy outcomes to funders, employers and co-workers. This edited volume provides a series of case studies, with varied client groups, giving arts therapists an accessible introduction to assessment and outcome measures that can be easily incorporated into their regular practice. The book provides demonstrations, within a practice-based evidence framework, of how measures can be tailored to the individual client's needs. The case studies show assessment and outcome models for music therapy, art therapy and dramatherapy used with a range of client groups including people with intellectual disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson's Disease and those suffering from depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or coping with bereavement.
