About the Author

Rachel Cohen is an art therapist based in New York. She is a graduate of Pratt Institute's art therapy program and previously worked as Program Coordinator/Art Therapist at LAND Gallery, a studio and gallery for artists with developmental disabilities in Brooklyn. Rachel promotes the work of non-traditional creators through her advisory service, NAPlabs, and is currently an educator at the Museum of Modern Art.


This exciting book looks at the relationship of art therapy with outsider art. It considers the history of both separately and in relation to each other, and the problems of definition for both. It is informed by work in open studios in several cities in the USA and bridges the gap between the USA and Europe. -- Marian Liebmann, art therapist
