A practical framework for art therapy with older adults

About the Author

Erin Partridge is an art therapist and researcher. She has worked with older adults for over 7 years and is part-time faculty in the art therapy department at Notre Dame de Namur in Belmont, CA.


Dr. Partridge exquisitely captures the power of art therapy illuminated by a spirit of empowerment and advocacy for elders. This is a much-needed and enlightened guide and framework for art therapists working with this wonderful population and whose wisdom is applicable to all art therapists seeking to improve venerable results for their clients. -- Claudia Mezzera, Ph.D., LMFT, ATR, Adjunct Faculty, Notre Dame de Namur University
Art Therapy with Older Adults provides critical insight for art therapists to empower elders with creative potential. Including robust theoretical and practical examples of creativity and self-actualization, Dr Partridge, along with her older adult co-researchers, developed a much-needed art therapy theory. Through her work, including digital media and museums, Dr Partridge is revolutionizing how art therapy thinks about social empowerment, abilities, creativity, clinical practice, and research and with elders. -- Amy Backos, PhD, ATR-BC, Chair, Graduate Art Therapy Psychology, Notre Dame de Namur University
