Book Description

"Art Therapy and Clinical Neuroscience" offers an authoritative introductory account of the latest developments in neuroscience and its impact on art therapy theory and practice. Contributors explore the complex relationship between art and creativity and neurological functions such as stress response, immune functioning, child developmental phases, gender difference, the processing of imagery, attachment, and trauma. It deciphers neuroscientific language and theory and provides concrete applications for art therapy practice and interventions. This book is essential reading for art therapists, expressive arts therapists, counsellors, mental health practitioners and students.

Product Description


Art Therapy and Clinical Neoroscience is a significant achievement and a welcomed and needed addition to the field of art therapy as well as a likely historical marker on the timeline of theoritical shifts within the field...Packed full of material readers interested in learning more about the topic of art therapy and neuroscience will benefit greatly from the assimilation of such a wealth of material collected under one cover. -- Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, Christopher Belkover, Milwaukee, WI There are ongoing scientific discoveries that support the work we do as art therapists and we need to be aware of them. This unique and novel book has to be part of the library of every practicing art therapist. Use it to map out your clients' journeys or explain to others what you do. I highly recommend it. -- Canadian Art Therapy Journal This book is an outstanding portrait of art therapy, offering a new framework for the clinical practice of art therapy. The text has the potential to increase motivation in the multidisciplinary team and its clients, and to bring enthusiasm, provide stimulus for change and promote innovation in clinical and community settings. -- International Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation This is an impressive accomplishment Hass-Cohen and Carr and their contributors have blazed a trail for us to follow. Helping professionals who use art would be wise to put on their hiking boots and begin the journey. -- from the Foreword by Frances F. Kaplan

5.0 out of 5 stars review 1 15 Feb. 2009
By L. McArthur - Published on
I believe that the book is very interesting and informative of Clinical Neuroscience. I found it interesting to see how the book combined Neuroscience and Art Therapy by describing the parts of the brain that were active during certain art tasks and human emotion. It was a great purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very thorough 5 May 2009
By B. Allgeier - Published on
This compilation delivers concise explanations and examples of recent research in the field of Art Therapy. Both case studies and Art Therapist's works are illustrated. It is not very necessary to have a background in psychology or neuroscience--as biological terms are defined in a comprehensible way. Black and White illustrations. Fascinating for the creative psychologist.

3.0 out of 5 stars the author knows their stuff, but I could not get into the book. 29 Dec. 2012
By mary - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was hoping for a less technical book. I wanted and needed more actual hands on help. I am not an art therapist and was hoping for somthing like the art therapy and clinical neuroscience for dummies sort of book.
