About this product
- DescriptionArt therapy is a developing profession worldwide, and one that is recognised in some countries, but by means all. Furthering the establishment of art therapy will require the discipline to develop a robust research profile, one that shows it to be an effective intervention with a wide range of client populations within health, social, educational and criminal justice systems. This edited volume makes a significant contribution to art therapy's evidence base. It reports on invative art therapy research and conveys, in an accessible and highly readable way, the lived experience of research by art therapy practitioners. Narratives describe a variety of fascinating projects - from a randomised controlled trial to research-based case studies and clinical research that draws on visual and historical methods - that demonstrate a reflexive loop which moves from practice to research and from research back into practice, showing that research is an exciting, accessible and eminently do-able activity. A collaborative approach between the editor and the contributors informs a series of commentaries about both their research findings in relation to the evidence-base of art therapy with children, adults and people with learning disabilities, and the issues that arise for clinical practices and services at the point of delivery.
- Author BiographyAndrea Gilroy is an experienced art therapy educator and researcher at Goldsmiths, University of London, where she is Reader in Art Psychotherapy and Head of the Department of Professional and Community Education. She originally trained as a painter before qualifying as an art therapist in the mid-1970s, working in acute psychiatry and with people with learning disabilities. Her research interests include the development of art therapy's evidence base, particularly through practice-based and visual research methods, the interface between the theories and practices of visual art/visual culture and art therapy, and the development of art therapy as a practice and a profession around the world.
