The new directions in which art therapy is advancing are examined in this book. These include: new populations now being addressed by human services (battered women, new immigrants, incest victims, bereaved children, cancer patients, etc); new methods, with notable emphasis on creative synthesis with other modalities (computer animation, photography, video, and psychodrama); and training (dealing with supervision, handling countertransference, and termination). This work extends the coverage of Wadeson's earlier two books into the latest developments in techniques and applications. It is thought that many of the topics treated herein have never before appeared in any book. It should be useful for art therapists (and other therapists who may use art therapy in their work), psychologists, psychiatrists, counsellors, lecturers, students, clinicians, social workers, nurses, rehabilitation specialists, and recreational therapists.
