Art therapists are increasingly working in schools, and there is growing interest in identifying relevant approaches and further exploring research evidence. This book outlines the potential uses of music, art, drama and dance movement therapies in educational settings, and the value they can add to the emotional and social development of children and adolescents. Drawing on international evidence, the contributors outline a wide range of innovative applications of arts therapies across a range of settings, such as mainstream classrooms, special schools and student support units. Findings discussed include how solution-focused brief dramatherapy group work can contribute to conflict resolution and co-operative play; how exposure to art therapy can ignite the imagination of children with autism; and how encouraging child-led music-making can improve educational achievements. Particular emphasis is placed upon collaborative work, whether it is between arts therapists from different disciplines, arts therapists and teaching staff or arts therapists and researchers.
