PHOTO ART THERAPY: A JUNGIAN PERSPECTIVE illuminates and guides the reader through new possibilities for art therapy practice, approached by the authors as a creative interaction with different artistic media and therapeutic methods. Although the book is based on Jungian theory and practice, the authors carefully explore cooperation with other therapeutic perspectives, all of which are in keeping with Jung's belief in transcendent universals and multifaceted therapeutic practices. The book is divided into four sections: Self-Understanding, Alleviating Distress and Symptoms, Group Therapy, and Discussion. Wherever possible and practical, photo art therapy work done by clients as illustrations of the concepts is included. The text not only demonstrates innovative ways of combining artistic media but allows clients to articulate the inner workings of the therapeutic process through an engaging series of dialogues and narrations. The book establishes a twofold landmark in elucidating art thera-py's close and vital connections to both phototherapy and the discipline of Jungian psychotherapy.

Originator, innovator, activist and educator, Emeritus Professor Michael Edwards was central to the international evolution of art therapy. These previously unpublished papers are the most substantial written record of his thinking. Highly praised by leading figures in art psychotherapy, Professor Shaun McNiff wrote '...the ideas have wings that carry the reader inside to the marrow of art... The book will appeal to artists looking for a threshold into the arts in therapy'. Rejection of reductionism and fundamentalism made Edwards a champion of soul, a challenger of simple mindedness. Widely honoured as an art therapist, educator, supervisor and Jungian analyst this book appropriately reflects Edwards achievements. The humour, wisdom and idiosyncrasy of the writer has been preserved in the careful editing by Learmonth & Huckvale of these transcribed talks. The book is beautifully illustrated with some of Edward's favourite artworks, the 'Talepieces' from Thomas Bewick's Birds.

Psychodynamic Art Therapy Practice with People on the Autistic Spectrum offers a valuable counterbalance to the phenomenological, cognitive and behavioural theories that currently prevail in the wider field of practice and research. The result of a decade of work by a group of highly experienced art therapists, this book presents eight frank and compelling accounts of art therapy with either adults or children with autism, supported by a discussion of the relevant theory. The book begins with an overview of the theoretical context and the subsequent chapters give varied accounts of practitioners’ experiences structured in a loose developmental arc, reflecting issues that may arise in different settings and at various stages of therapy. Each is followed by an afterword which describes the author’s reflections in the light of their subsequent knowledge and experience. The conclusion brings together some of the common threads arising from their encounters and considers how these might be relevant to current and continuing art therapy practice in the field of autism. Psychodynamic Art Therapy Practice with People on the Autistic Spectrum is a thoughtful consideration of where art therapy meets autism and the particular challenges that arise in the encounter between the autistic client and the therapist. Presenting honest reflections arising from lived encounters and highlighting general principles and experiences, this book aims to orient other practitioners who work with people on the autistic spectrum, in particular art therapists and art therapy trainees.

The title of this book reflects the main themes from 50 years of Susan Bach's analytical work with spontaneous pictures and in her blue room. In working with spontaneous pictures and drawings, she perceived the expression of deep connections between psyche and soma and learned that it knows within us when either healing or death is imminent. Talking with Susan Bach about her work was inspiring and humbling and, drinking coffee as only she could make it, one felt deeply privileged to be studying with someone who brought so much intuition and intellectual understanding to the contemplation of the human psyche. The humbling part of the conversation came from wondering how to move one's own work towards the paths she was opening up. The purpose of this collection of essays is to show how the work of connecting and finding meaning continues and advances, whether through pictures, objects, dreams or other images and myths. The contributors have in common both a Jungian background and their having made distinguished contributions in their own specialties.

Discussing not only the history of Jungian analysis but its present and future applications, this book marks a major contribution to the worldwide study of psychoanalysis.

Art therapy and all of the other creative arts therapies have promoted themselves as ways of expressing what cannot be conveyed in conventional language. Why is it that creative arts therapists fail to apply this line of thinking to research? In this exciting and innovative book, Shaun McNiff, one of the field's pioneering educators and authors, breaks new ground in defining and inspiring art-based research. He illustrates how practitioner-researchers can become involved in art-based inquiries during their educational studies and throughout their careers, and shows how new types of research can be created that resonate with the artistic process. Clearly and cogently expressed, the theoretical arguments are illustrated by numerous case examples, and the final part of the book provides a wealth of ideas and thought provoking questions for research. This challenging book will prove invaluable to creative art therapy educators, students, and clinicians who wish to approach artistic inquiry as a way of conducting research. It will also find a receptive audience within the larger research community where there is a rising commitment to expanding the theory and practice of research. Integrating artistic and scientific procedures in many novel ways, this book offers fresh and productive visions of what research can be.
