Jessica Tress Masterson, Joanna Clyde Findlay, Richard Carr, Frances Kaplan, Terre Bridgham
Art Therapy and Clinical Neuroscience offers an authoritative introductory account of recent developments in clinical neuroscience and its impact on art therapy theory and practice.
Contributors explore the complex relationship between art and creativity and neurological functions such as those that occur during stress response, immune functioning, child developmental phases, gender difference, the processing of imagery, attachment, and trauma. It deciphers neuroscientific language and theory and contributes innovative concrete applications and interventions useful in art therapy.
This book is essential reading for art therapists, expressive arts therapists, counselors, mental health practitioners, and students.
