Mentalizing in Group Art Therapy
Interventions for Emerging Adults
Kula Moore, Kate Marder
By creating a therapeutic outlet for processing and self-expression, art therapy is an especially effective way to help emerging adults to develop their mentalizing faculty. With an 8-week syllabus, this professional guide provides detailed directives on putting mentalizing-based arts interventions into clinical practice with those aged 18-30, in a group or individual setting. With a specific focus on the differences in treating this age group, and case examples to demonstrate how art therapy interventions enhance mentalizing, this guide is an ideal resource for all professional art therapists looking to utilize their distinct capabilities and specialized training in a psychiatric hospital setting.
