Art & Music Therapy
This edited volume systematically describes the major adaptations of the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery which accommodate a variety of contexts and client groups. The international contributors, who each use these adaptations in their own clinical practice, provide theoretical and practical details of the approach used for their client group.
Art therapists working with a range of ages and neurological conditions including epilepsy, dementia, Alzheimer's, acquired brain injury, motor neurone disease and multiple sclerosis, describe the effects of the conditions on clients' functioning and how different art therapy practices have transformed the rehabilitation process.
17 experienced art therapists explain what art therapy can achieve with physical conditions including cancer, debilitating syndromes such as M.E., physical conditions in combination with homelessness and learning disabilities, and children with chronic illness. They also cover the challenges and considerations when working with these groups.
Yoga, Art, and the Use of Intention
Yoga postures, meditation and art therapy-based techniques are combined in this innovative approach structured around targeting a specific treatment goal for each therapeutic session. For each goal, a mudra (hand position) meditation, yoga pose and art directive are recommended to embody the chosen intention.
