Art Therapy and Dramatherapy: Masks of the Soul
Based on more than ten years of research and practice of art therapy and dramatherapy in training, clinical practice and theory, this book is the first to explore the relationship and differences between these two disciplines.
The first part of the book explores the theoretical background and the history and practice of art therapy and dramatherapy, including accounts of the authors' personal experiences and the creative and imaginative processes they make use of in their work. The second part describes five major themes that have been practically and collaboratively developed by the authors, who clearly set out the methods and practices used. They show how images such as the body, doors, bridges, journeys and masks can be used effectively in therapy.
