Summary: "Contemporary Practice in Studio Art Therapy discovers where studio practice stands in the profession today and reflects on how changing social, political and economic contexts have influenced its ethos and development. This is the first UK volume devoted to studio art therapy and the writers explore what is meant by a studio approach and how they are adapting art-based practices in radical new ways and settings. It comprises three parts: 'Frames of Reference' explores how particular social, cultural and political contexts have led to the discourses within practice; 'Models of Practice' gives accounts of current studio art therapy practice, describing rationale for working methods and providing a resource for practitioners; 'Curating, Exhibiting and Archiving' considers how the display and disposal of artworks, particularly relevant to studio approaches, may be thought about and implemented. The book includes chapters from North American authors who illustrate a trajectory of practice that has the potential to point to future developments. The book will be essential reading for practitioners and students who are interested in taking a fresh perspective on art therapy and will be encouraged by new ways of thinking about the studio approach in today's changing world"-- Provided by publisher.
