Whether working in urban areas with high levels of cultural diversity, providing art therapy to 'unique' populations such as prisoners or asylums seekers, or introducing art therapy programs to parts of the world in which it is not yet established, it is essential that therapists understand the importance of practicing in a culturally sensitive manner. This comprehensive book considers how culture impacts the practice of art therapy in a variety of settings. With contributions from experienced art therapists who have worked in diverse environments, this book attempts to understand and highlight the specific cultural, subcultural and ethnic influences that inform art therapy treatment. It addresses variable factors including setting, population, environment and ability, and how they influence art therapy approaches. It also considers how cultural differences can impact physical art making through choices of color, symbol and metaphor. Each chapter provides a framework showing how art therapy techniques have been used in order to successfully work with distinct populations. This book will provide practitioners with ideas for how to adapt art therapy training and approaches to suit the setting and meet the needs of a vast range of populations. Full of informative case studies, this book will be invaluable reading for art therapists and students of art therapy.

Art Therapy with Students at Risk: Fostering Resilience and Growth Through Self-Expression reflects the current research, legislation, and trends that impact the theory and practice of art therapy with diverse at-risk student populations. The book is divided into eight chapters and it includes twelve therapeutic techniques. The 12 therapeutic techniques are written in a lesson plan format which provide opportunities for children to express their thoughts and feelings coupled with confirmation that their art is important to them and to others. Chapter 1, “Adolescence,” examines the developmental period between childhood and adulthood. Chapter 2, “Alternative Schools,” describes the development of alternative schools in the United States through legislative reform, education reform, and civil rights. Chapter 3, “Alternative Education,” explores the catalyst for policymakers to make quality education a civil rights issue. Chapter 4, “Emotions and Learning,” investigates the relationship between emotions and learning and the impact of this relationship on academic achievement. Chapter 5, “Multicultural and Diversity Competence,” focuses on the changing demographics in the United States which have significant implications for the art therapy profession. Chapter 6, “From Risk to Resilience,” highlights the paradigm shift in resilience research away from the deficit, pathology-focused model of development, referred to as the Damage Model to the Challenge Model. Chapter 7, “Art Psychotherapy,” provides insight into the unique criteria that distinguishes it from other types of psychotherapy. Chapter 8, “Art Therapy with Students at Risk,” presents a foundational framework for developing and implementing an art therapy program within a traditional or nontraditional learning environment. This book is designed for art therapy students, professional art therapists, educators, administrators, and practitioners in the allied professions of counseling, social work, psychology, prevention, and human services.

This landmark publication has been thoroughly revised and brought up to date in the Second Edition. Doctor Ellen G. Horovitz shares over thirty-five years of experience as she transliterates evidence-based art therapy into medical terminology. This treatise spells out the how-to's behind producing art therapy assessments, process notes, significant sessions, objectives and modalities, termination summaries and internet-based assessments into translatable documentation, designed to dovetail within an interdisciplinary medical model. This step-by-step methodology fashions these reports, places art therapy on equal footing with all mental health workers and generates records, which serves as points of departure for future practitioners. The experienced clinician will gather pertinent skills to enhance his or her practice. The student or seasoned graduate will harness the necessary armament to write clinically-based reports that serve as a model for the field, and educators can use this manual as a teaching tool. The Appendices (A-L) provide a wealth of information and forms to use in a clinically-based art therapy practice. Recording and communicating clinical findings in a cogent manner to a clinical medical and/or educational team is the trademark of this opus. In addition, there is a DVD located in the back of this book where the reader will find all the Appendix Forms, all images in color (by chapter) and three movies on conducting the CATA, ATDA and BATA. This must-have reference manual amasses information that will serve as a companion guide for every art therapist (neophyte or seasoned) to formulate clinical reports, and it will aid clients towards a trajectory of wellness, recovery and, above all, health. Through the guidance of Horovitz's milestone text, art therapists will not only walk the walk, but more significantly, learn how to talk the talk.

With illuminating case studies, the book explains how to handle very practical issues, such as working with an interpreter, and opens the door to a wider conversation around the use of art in multicultural work.
