'The purpose of this book is to answer the question, “What is postmodernism and what does it mean for art therapists?” If we were to shine art therapy through a prism, what would it do?'
Art Therapy and Postmodernism brings together the work of international art therapists with diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. These practitioners, however, share a common postmodern belief that art is a unique way of expressing and mediating the human condition and that art therapy should not be a diagnostic tool but a collaborative healing process between the therapist and the client. With detailed case studies throughout and methods of inquiry that
draw on psychotherapy, aesthetics and philosophy, this book is a comprehensive exploration of art therapy from a postmodernist perspective in clinical practice, on a community and global level, in research, and in epistemology.
This book is an important contribution to art therapy theory and will be a crucial text for all art therapy students, academics, researchers and practitioners.
