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 used in contemporary psychotherapy 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.

Contributors:
Jeremy Holmes; Joy Schaverien; Mary Levens; Marina Jenkins; Paul Holmes; Kedzie Penfield; Helen Odell-Miller; Jocelyn James; Yvonne Searles; and Isabelle Streng.

'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
