The Art of Art Therapy, first published in 1984, was written primarily to help art therapists first define and then refine a way of thinking about their work. This new edition contains thoroughly revised chapters that reflect the significant expansion of the field of art therapy in the period since the book was first written. Specifically, this second edition invites the reader to first consider closely the main elements of the discipline embodied in its name: the Art Part and the Therapy Part. Chapters dealing with each of these topics comprise the first two sections of the book. The third section, The Interface, contains chapters dealing with putting the two together in an integrated way, i.e. Doing Art Therapy (step by step) and doing it Artistically.Judith A.
