Effective Integration of Art Therapists in Schools
Schools are increasingly employing art therapists. Properly integrating art therapists in schools makes it possible to maximize the high potential of therapy work with children, as well as contributing to the entire school environment. Supervisors, principals, teachers, school counselors and educational psychologists will find here a concise explanation of the nature of art therapy, along with case examples. This book provides a theoretical and practical survey of the issues surrounding the integration of emotional therapy in an educational framework.
