In this age of technology, we see computers used in every aspect of medicine. Psychology, and more precisely art therapy, now integrate technology into their system. This new publication, edited by Dr. Stephanie Brooke, examines how creative therapists use technology as part of their everyday practice. The collection of chapters is written by renowned, well-credentialed, and professional creative art therapists in the areas of art, play, music, dance/movement, and drama. These therapists have used technology to treat patients suffering from dementia, depression, and learning disabilities. Combining digital and musical “co-creative tangibles” in everyday settings benefit families with children and adolescents with physical and mental needs. The reader is provided with a snapshot of how these various creative art therapies effectively use and incorporate technology to promote growth and healing for their clients. In addition, some of the chapters are illustrated with photographs of client’s artwork, tables and graphs. This informative book will be of special interest to educators, students, and therapists, as well as people working with families and children in need of counseling and clinical support.
