Overview

Medical Art Therapy with Children is the first work to tackle this rapidly growing field. It will be an essential resource for professionals - psychologists, counsellors, play therapists and art therapists - working with physically ill children on a day-to-day basis. Medical art therapy is defined as the use of drawings, art expression and imagery with individuals who are physically ill or disabled, or are undergoing aggressive medical treatment such as surgery or chemotherapy. Drawing on case material from variety of situations, the book describes current research on medical art therapy with children, and practical approaches to using art activities with them. The writers examine art therapy with young patients suffering from burns, cancer, asthma, arthritis, eating disorders and HIV/AIDS.
