-- The Arts in Psychotherapy
One of the principal focal points is the place of art in art therapy and of the responses to that art by both clients and other therapists. Contributors draw on their own experiences as art therapists in attempts to identify what contributes to successful practice and how therapists can overcome difficulties or apparent failures in their work. A range of factors affecting art therapy practice is explored, including the physical context of art therapy sessions, the place of the notion of containment in therapy, and the interplay of the different elements - art, speech, subjectivity, objectivity - that are part of contemporary practice. -- Arts Research Digest
