Description - Art as Therapy by Edith Kramer

Edith Kramer is a pioneer in the field of art therapy, known throughout the world. This collection of papers reflects her lifetime of work in this field, showing how her thoughts and practice have developed over the years. She considers a wide spectrum of issues, covering art, art therapy, society, ethology and clinical practice, and places art therapy in its social and historical context. Drawing on her very considerable personal experience as an art therapist, Kramer illustrates her conviction that art making is central to practice and cautions against making words primary and art secondary in art therapy. This book offers an insight into the personal development of a leading world art therapist and of the development of art therapy as a profession.
