Interest in the use of digital technology in art therapy has grown significantly in recent years. This book provides an authoritative overview of the applications of digital art therapy with different client groups and considers the implications for practice. Alongside Cathy Malchiodi, the contributors review the pros and cons of introducing digital technology into art therapy, address the potential ethical and professional issues that can arise and give insight into the effect of digital technology on the brain. They cover a wide range of approaches, from therapeutic filmmaking to the use of tablet and smartphone technology in therapy. Detailed case studies bring the practicalities of using digital technology with children, adolescents and adults to life and the use of social media in art therapy practice, networking and community-building is also discussed.

Eine junge Frau ist gestorben. Ihre Kinder, zwei kleine Jungen, und ihr Mann sind noch betäubt vom Schock, haben haufenweise Beileidsbekundungen und Lasagne zum Aufwärmen entgegengenommen, die notwendigen Dinge organisiert, und nun setzt die unerträgliche Leere ein. Da klingelt es an der Tür. Totenschwarz und gefiedert bricht es herein, packt den Vater und verkündet: "Ich gehe erst wieder, wenn du mich nicht mehr brauchst." Die überlebensgroße Krähe nistet sich rücksichtslos in der Familie ein, meldet sich mit drastischem Witz zu Wort und wird dabei zu einer Art subversivem Therapeuten, eine herrlich anarchische Mary Poppins. Max Porter ist ein bildmächtiges, wildes Buch über die Trauer gelungen.

This book provides practical guidance on delivering therapeutic photography interventions and introduces the theory underpinning the approach. Each chapter describes a different element of therapeutic photography, including storytelling through photographs to discuss relationships and the use of self-portraits and selfies to explore identity. Exercises, reflection points and examples are provided throughout and a detailed case study shows the approaches described in the book used with a group of young adults on the autism spectrum. An adaptable programme is also included in the appendix.

Is therapy’s relational turn only something to celebrate? It is a major worldwide trend taking place in all the therapy traditions. But up to now appreciation of these developments has not been twinned with well-informed and constructive critique. Hence practitioners and students have not been able to engage as fully as they might with the complex questions and issues that relational working presents. Relational Psychotherapy, Psychoanalysis and Counselling: Appraisals and reappraisals seeks to redress this balance. In this unique book, Del Loewenthal and Andrew Samuels bring together the contributions of writers from several countries and many therapy modalities, all of whom have engaged with what ‘relational’ means – whether to espouse the idea, to urge caution or to engage in sceptical reflection. Relational Psychotherapy, Psychoanalysis and Counselling: Appraisals and reappraisals presents clinical work of the highest standard in a way that is moving and draws the reader in. The more intellectual contributions are accessible and respectful, avoiding the polarising tendencies of the profession. At a time when there has been a decline in the provision and standing of the depth therapies across the globe, this book shows that, whatever the criticisms, there is still creative energy in the field. It is hoped that practitioners and students in psychoanalysis, psychotherapy counselling and counselling psychology will welcome this book for its cutting edge content and compassionate tone.
