Overview

Art Therapy Across Cultural and Race Boundaries: Working with Identity by Lorette Dye

With an international focus, this book considers how art techniques and exercises can be used in therapeutic work across cultural and race boundaries.

Drawing on her experience working in post-Apartheid South Africa, the author gives practical guidance on how to overcome resistance to the therapeutic process, misunderstandings, and other barriers, such as language difficulties. With illuminating case studies, the book explains how to handle very practical issues, such as working with an interpreter, and opens the door to a wider conversation around the use of art in multicultural work.
