Approaches to Art Therapy: Theory and Technique

Author(s): Judith Aaron Rubin

Art & Creative Therapies

This 2nd edition of the 1987 book brings together the varied theoretical approaches to art therapy and provides a variety of solutions to the challenge of translating theory into technique. In each chapter, the contributors, experts in the approach of the particular chapter, provide a definition of and orientation to the specific area of emphasis, showing its relevance to art therapy. Clinical examples and nearly 100 illustrations are employed as the authors present the creative and effective treatment of patients. In addition to the strength of the theoretical overview, this edition offers many new chapters, including those on cognitive-behavioural therapy and person-centered therapy. The text is divided into five sections: psychodynamic approaches, humanistic approaches, psycho-educational approaches, systemic approaches, and integrative approaches. Commentaries by well-known art therapists follow each section of the book. Art therapists at all levels, as well many mental health professionals using art in their clinical work, should find this new edition of value and interest.
