Art & Music Therapy
Treatment and Risk Reduction
This book is a valuable practical guide for all those working in the field of trauma, from the result of war to the aftermath of sexual abuse. It shows ways forward in helping the sufferer, or group, in their journey through the dark, discussing how they can discover new paths or be reminded of long forgotten coping skills.
This text recasts Arthur Robbins' early work within the framework of modern psychodynamic theory. The creative intent of this text is to offer a structure that is not limited to one therapeutic model and to open up the doors for the creative art therapist to be effective with a wide range of patient populations.
Masks of the Soul
Based on more than ten years of research and practice of art therapy and dramatherapy in training, clinical practice and theory, this book is the first to explore the relationship and differences between these two disciplines. It shows how images such as the body, doors, bridges, journeys and masks can be used effectively in therapy.
A World of Difference
Chesner's book explores dramatherapy as perhaps the most wide-ranging of all art forms, incorporating as it does elements of music, movement, design, story and performance, and addresses the value of action-based therapy methods with people with learning difficulties.
Aspects of Creative Music Therapy with Adult Clients
Music for Life is the first survey in book form of Creative Music Therapy with adult clients. Central to the book is the idea that music therapy derives its uniqueness from music's base as a non-verbal art form. The accompanying CD allows the reader the opportunity to listen to excerpts from case studies described in the book.
