Edited by Cathy A. Malchiodi, ATR, LPCC, CPAT, REAT, National Institute for Trauma and Loss in Children, Grosse Pointe Woods,   This timely volume helps mental health clinicians incorporate different expressive modalities into practice with children, adults, and groups. Expert contributors present in-depth descriptions of their respective therapies, including art, music, dance/movement, drama, poetry, play, sandtray, and integrative approaches. In addition to reviewing the theoretical and empirical bases of each modality, chapters detail the process of assessment and intervention with people experiencing specific clinical problems and life challenges. A wealth of concrete examples and case vignettes are featured throughout to bring key concepts to life. Giving particular attention to strategies for integrating expressive work with other forms of psychotherapy and counseling, this is an eminently practical resource for clinicians of any orientation.        


 


KEY FEATURES: * Provides clear, practical guidelines for the most popular expressive therapies. * From the author of the bestselling Understanding Children's Drawings. * Will reach a broad range of mental health professionals, not just specialists. * There is growing interest in and acceptance of expressive therapies in mental health. * Coverage includes play, art, music, dance/movement, drama, and poetry therapies, as well as integrative approaches.          


 


CRITICAL ACCLAIM  'This well-edited volume advances our understanding of the practice of the expressive therapies and does so in a clear and concise manner. What is special about this volume is its inclusiveness: all of the major expressive therapies are presented. This is an ideal text for advanced undergraduates and graduate students considering a career in the expressive therapies, as well as for practitioners who want to explore an integrative approach to clinical work.' --- Paul M. Camic, PhD, Liberal Education Department, Columbia College      'The use of the expressive therapies as powerful forms of healing extends back throughout the history of humankind. Despite the centrality of the arts to therapy, this volume offers the first comprehensive description of the therapeutic use of the various creative arts modalities. It will serve as an invaluable resource for professionals and students in mental health, rehabilitation, and health care who wish to combine the arts with therapy to improve the lives of people of all ages dealing with the broadest range of concerns and disabilities. This seminal book will inevitably become the definitive text in the use of specific art modalities, as well as the integration of all arts modalities.' --- Susan Spaniol, EdD, ATR-BC, LMHC, Expressive Therapies Division, Lesley University     'Provides a clear and engaging overview of the expressive therapies. Experts in each modality present basic information on each type of therapy and its practice and discuss clinical issues and concerns. In addition to the traditional expressive therapies, some newer approaches are also covered. This book will be very useful to healthcare professionals who want an overview of the expressive therapies and to expressive therapy practitioners who desire an understanding of other modalities. A welcome addition to the literature!' --- Barbara L. Wheeler, PhD, MT-BC, Music Therapy Program, University of Louisville       'Most comprehensive and useful. Expressive Therapies reveals how various creative modalities can be used in the context of a counseling or therapy relationship. The ways in which particular artistic practices are employed in working with clients at different stages of life are also addressed. The pragmatic quality of this text is outstanding. It is a work that will inform and enlighten therapists from multiple disciplines. This volume is like a good soup, rich in texture and flavor, making one hungry to return again and again for another helping.' --- Samuel T. Gladding, PhD, Department of Counseling, Wake Forest University      AUDIENCE: Practitioners and students in clinical, counseling, and school psychology: psychiatry: family therapy: and clinical social work: rehabilitation and health care: play, art, and other expressive therapists.     CLASSROOM USE: Serves as a text in advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level courses in expressive therapies, psychotherapy, and counseling.     Contents: 1.

"There is something for everyone in this book. The compilation of authors from different areas of specializations demonstrates the editor's effort to reach out to sister disciplines and appeal to a wide range of health care professionals with a range of clinical experience....An excellent introduction to the field, capturing the essences of each of the topics presented, while sparking the reader to pursue other resources which may be of particular interest. For the more experienced clinician who has a basic foundation on expressive therapies, this book provides sophisticated information including theoretical constructs which will challenge and expand the reader's understanding and ways of applying the arts to their practice. Regardless of the reader's skill level, vignettes in each chapter provide poignant case examples illustrating the truly powerful healing and transformative effect that the arts have in treatment."
