Since the initial publication of An Introduction to Art Therapy Research interest in art therapy research has grown drastically as public policy demands for evidence-based practice continue to accelerate. This revised and expanded new edition pays particular attention to the most current literature and emerging trends in research while guiding readers through the basics of research design in quantitative and qualitative methodology. Also included are strategies for evaluating research and writing for peer-reviewed publication, added coverage on cross-cultural research, as well as an instructor's manual with student resources to enhance the pedagogical features of the text.
