"The use of the expressive therapies as powerful forms of healing extends back throughout the history of humankind. Despite the centrality of the arts to therapy, this volume offers the first comprehensive description of the therapeutic use of the various creative arts modalities. It will serve as an invaluable resource for professionals and students in mental health, rehabilitation, and health care who wish to combine the arts with therapy to improve the lives of people of all ages dealing with the broadest range of concerns and disabilities. This seminal book will inevitably become the definitive text in the use of specific art modalities, as well as the integration of all arts modalities."--Susan Spaniol, EdD, ATR-BC, LMHC, Expressive Therapies Division, Lesley University
"Provides a clear and engaging overview of the expressive therapies. Experts in each modality present basic information on each type of therapy and its practice and discuss clinical issues and concerns. In addition to the traditional expressive therapies, some newer approaches are also covered. This book will be very useful to professionals who want an overview of the expressive therapies and to expressive therapy practitioners who desire an understanding of other modalities. A welcome addition to the literature!"--Barbara L. Wheeler, PhD, MT-BC, Music Therapy Program, University of Louisville
"Most comprehensive and useful. Expressive Therapies reveals how various creative modalities can be used in the context of a counseling or therapy relationship. The ways in which particular artistic practices are employed in working with clients at different stages of life are also addressed. The pragmatic quality of this text is outstanding. It is a work that will inform and enlighten therapists from multiple disciplines. This volume is like a good soup, rich in texture and flavor, making one hungry to return again and again for another helping."--Samuel T. Gladding, PhD, Department of Counseling, Wake Forest University
