US$ 48.95
By Hanna Yaxa Kwiatkowska. With a Foreword by Lyman C. Wynne. This book describes the special kind of communication provided by the graphic and plastic media, and how it can and is being used with families for therapy, evaluation and research. The author, a renowned sculptor who has worked extensively in the mental health field, begins with an account of the origin and evolution of art therapy with families. Details of the family art session are presented, followed by discussions of family art therapy as it relates to adjunctive verbal therapy and to hysterical and schizophrenic patients and their families. The procedures of family art evaluation are then meticulously revealed. The author explores the use of sculpture and delineates the possibilities inherent in employing family art therapy as a primary mode of treatment. A number of family art techniques which can be used as research tools are covered in the final chapter. This most important contribution to the practice of family therapy will appeal to a variety of therapists and counselors who are using or are considering the use of family therapy and evaluation through art, and to those who are simply interested in the subject.
