Graphic Facilitation is an innovative and wholly new application of art therapy theory and techniques to groups and organizations. Graphic Facilitation is a process in which a trained consultant, through color, symbols, and metaphors in murals, interprets and documents something as short as a keynote address or as long as an entire conference. The text provides a new and exciting avenue for art therapists and for organizational development consultants. The authors provide a detailed explanation of Graphic Facilitation—what it is, how and why it works, ideas about how to become a trained Graphic Facilitator, and a multidisciplinary literature base and resources that aspiring Graphic Facilitators will need. The book’s references and bibliography include pertinent, classic organizational development literature, essential learning for work in the area. Five case studies carefully lay out how the Graphic Facilitation process works in practice with a variety of organizational styles, models, and issues. They include visual murals and other imagery created by the Graphic Facilitator for each organizational event. These case studies clearly illustrate the value and promise of art therapy as an exciting new tool and provide a view of the impressive use of Graphic Facilitation. Written by two art therapists, this book is for art therapists who would like to develop and learn to use art therapy applications for business and organizational sectors. In this, it is an exciting new practice area for art therapists. The book will also be valuable for business coaches, human resource managers, organizational management consultants and facilitators who would like to enrich their practice with Graphic Facilitation techniques. In the rear of the book is a CD-ROM “Graphic Facilitation in Action” in which the actual creation of a mural in an organizational meeting is presented along with color images of the black and white plates of the book.
