The legal and humanitarian response to the world's growing population of refugees and migrants has created more awareness of not only the physical but also the psychological needs of displaced peoples.
Ditty Dokter is joined by contributors from a number of multicultural backgrounds, in a volume examining the role of art, music, dance and drama in healing the effects of trauma and restoring the sense of cultural and personal identity.
"This significant book consists 15 essays from arts therapists working in various ways with refugees, and as immigrants themselves ... I recommend this book without reservation. It has relevance for counsellors, therapists and arts therapists who might need to examine their personal, professional and political attitude towards race and culture. In a society, a world which is ever more multi-cultural, this book is a must"
