Art Therapy the Person-centred Way : Art and the Development of the Person

by Liesl Silverstone
£19.99   paperback  Jessica Kingsley Publishers (1997)

Art Therapy the Person-centred Way : Art and the Development of the Person by Liesl Silverstone An enlarged edition of the first book published on person-centred art therapy, and includes many more exercises and ideas. Liesl Silverstone argues that we need to engage both our verbal and non-verbal intelligence, both our thinking and our intuitive mode of knowing, to become integrated. She demonstrates that by bringing the person-centred facilitative approach to images expressed in art form, healing and growth can occur at every level of development.
 
To illustrate the effectiveness of this process, the book chronicles 12 students as they make their way through a year's person-centred art therapy course, sharing their step-by-step difficulties and successes in becoming person-centred, learning from their images, and applying person-centred art therapy in their diverse work settings.
 
The process, based on self-discovered learning, negotiated decision-making , self/peer assessment and certificating, demonstrates the collective aspect of the person-centred approach in action. This radical model can be transposed to a wide range of settings.
 
With its many exercises and illustrations, refreshing ideas and wide scope of application, this book is a rich resource manual and a must for everyone - both in training and in practice - involved with human development.
