Description

While traditional ""talk"" therapies remain at the foundation of counseling, the use of expressive and creative arts in conjunction with these methods can often deepen the healing process as well as expedite diagnosis, treatment and prevention. Integrating the Expressive Arts into Counseling Practice is designed to provide readers with an understanding of the ways in which expressive arts counseling techniques can be productively integrated into the leading counseling modalities.

Accessible to students and practitioners alike, it presents field-tested expressive arts interventions within the context of the most commonly taught theoretical orientations, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Gestalt Theory, Adlerian Theory, Choice Theory, Existential Theory, Feminist Theory, Person-Centered Theory, Narrative Therapy, and Integrative Theory. These chapters include the work of over 40 contributors, including expert practitioners and faculty, who offer detailed descriptions of their own successful expressive arts interventions.
