Using the same art therapy projects can become stale and uninspiring for clients and therapists. This broad-ranging collection of projects injects variety into art therapy sessions. A Practical Art Therapy is an-easy-to read book that is filled with step-by-step practical activities for therapists to use with individuals and groups.

Chapters cover various media and methods, including murals, advertising, puppetry and masks and holiday projects, making it easily accessible for even the busiest art therapist. Susan Buchalter suggests practical activities using everyday objects, and follows them through with a list of materials needed, a procedure plan and aims of the activity. The activities draw on situations and ideas that children and adults can relate to – for example, designing a flower, sculpting their own stress and creating a collage self-portrait. The author suggests ways of expanding art-making activities, such as drawing to music and creating personal logos. It is suitable for those new to the arts therapies field, practicing art therapists, counsellors and social workers. --- from the publisher
