- Our customers have not yet submitted a review for this title - click here to be the first to write a review
This book aims to provide the reader with a theoretical framework that considers how psychoanalysis can enrich the clinical application of the arts therapies. Five specialist arts therapies are examined: drama, psychodrama, art, dance movement and music.
Although the contributors represent a variety of orientations and practices, it is the theme of integration which makes this book most stimulated and original, demonstrating how both psychoanalysis and the arts therapies may benefit from a meeting of minds.
'The result is an extensive and convincing analysis of the complex ways in which these approaches display a palette of techniques to be used in individual, group or institutional settings, with patients affected by all sorts of emotional and existential problems, by therapists with a variety of skills, interests, professional trainings, and ideological attitudes'
- Andrea Sabbadini.
