Description of this Book

Exploring Ethical Dilemmas in Art Therapy presents not only the ethical principles to which art therapists must adhere, but also offers real life examples of ethical dilemmas from a wide range of professional settings. Particular emphasis is paid to the role that boundaries (emotional, physical, technological) play in the art therapist's work as well as ethical dilemmas that may appear when taking on additional roles such as case manager or expert witness. Offering a unique presentation centered on diverse vignettes with important lessons and ethical takeaways highlighted throughout, this exciting new volume will be an invaluable resource to all future and current art therapists.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review This book deals with challenges that art therapists often face in their professional life as therapists, as teachers, and as supervisors. For instance, what kind of art therapy can we teach in countries where art therapy does not exist? Is response-art more helpful to the client or to the art therapist? How flexible should we be with disruptive clients? This book offers a helpful analysis of relevant issues, together with the art therapist's answers and suggestions. -Paola Luzzatto, PhD, registered art therapist in the UK, USA, and Italy This book guides the reader into a deep and wide understanding of ethical dilemmas in art therapy practice. The book is easy to read and shows cultural differences told through clinical experience. It expresses many of the dilemmas that are most often not shared in the field and introduces art therapy methodology from different perspectives in a way where the reader is invited to make personal reflections on specific challenges. It can be an important inspiration to any clinician in the therapeutic field. -Vibeke Skov, PhD, clinical psychologist and founder of the Art Therapy Institute in Denmark
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 1 stars (out of 5)
