Putting art at the centre of art therapy

About the Author

Catherine Hyland Moon, MA, ATR is an art therapist with twenty years' experience in the mental health field. She is currently on the faculty of Marywood University's Graduate Art Therapy Program in Scranton, Pennsylvania. She also has a private practice in art therapy based in a community art gallery in Scranton. Her recent work has focused on performance art, installation art and the incorporation of found objects in painting.


The main concerns of this book are that art therapy has been subsumed in other healing practices and that it is time for art therapy to be reclaimed once more for what it should be, a practice based on the products and processes of art. The author argues that the original spirit of studio art therapy must have a place in the development of current art therapy practices. -- Arts Research Digest
