Product description


A very broad ranging discussion of the subject and, as promised in the preface, going far beyond the known areas that art therapy is usually associated with.--Hilary Curwen, Retired Art Psychotherapist

In The Illness Narratives the thoughtful American medic Arthur Kleinman wrote: 'Acting like a sponge illness soaks up personal and social significance from the world of the sick person' (1988:31). It is often in response to such experiences that the work of art therapy can be understood. This book is valuable in the way it gives voice to people with physical conditions who make art and meet with art therapists. Many different approaches to art therapy are described and offered as a way of contributing to the recovery of a person's energy and sense of significance.--Chris Wood, author of Navigating Art Therapy, team leader of Art Therapy Courses Northern Programme UK and Honorary Research Fellow with the University of Sheffield

This book is not only extremely timely; it is also very well written, edited, and full of vivid illustrations. I am truly delighted to be able to recommend it to art therapists on both sides of the pond. Interest in this area is growing rapidly, as our recognition of the intimate relationship between psyche and soma is at last leading to the provision of creative avenues of expression for those living through bodily traumas over which they have little control, but with which they must cope.--Judith A. Rubin, PhD, licensed psychologist, psychoanalyst, art therapist, author, faculty member of Psychiatry Department of the University of Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Center

This book opens the door on the inspiring lives of people with physical conditions in the success driven 'able-bodied' world.
It charts powerful and profound stories of people's pain and resilience and of how art therapy again and again facilitates a process of recovery and reconciliation for those who may be facing the challenge of increasing vulnerability, loss of independence or death.
An important and enlightening book.

--Cathy Ward, Art Therapist and EMDR practitioner with children and families

This book contains powerful stories from a diverse collection of people who have benefited from art therapy with experienced art therapists. Intended as a companion to Art Therapy with Neurological Conditions, it is well written, detailed, well researched and has many vivid illustrations.--Rosemary Strange, independent nurse consultant, Nursing Standard
