This book is an engaging collection of 12 essays on the theory, practice, and historical development of the field of art therapy in Britain, specifically regarding the treatment of psychosis. It is intended for a wide readership, internationally as well as from diverse clinical fields. It is organized into two sections. Part 1, Art, Psychotherapy, and Psychosis, consists of six chapters discussing issues of theory and practice, primarily from an analytic perspective, illustrated with case examples and reproductions of artwork. Part 2, Context and History, discusses the historical development of the profession. Most of the patients discussed are diagnosed as having schizophrenia, although some have diagnoses of manic-depressive and paranoid psychosis. However, the case studies will be of interest not only for clinicians who work with psychotic patients but also for those who work with children, adults with learning disabilities, or other nonverbal groups.
