What is art therapy all about? As one peruses this book, one begins to understand Malchiodi’s comment, "Although most contemporary practitioners do not take a strictly psychoanalytic, analytic, or object relations approach to art therapy, elements of these philosophies are present in many contemporary art therapy approaches to treatment" (p. 56). This sentence is actually the underlying premise of the book. That is to say, the enormous variety of psychotherapeutic approaches are thought of as "philosophies," and there always seems to be an art therapist to be found who will practice in accordance with any of these philosophies. So, for example, we have chapters on psychoanalytic, analytic, and object relations approaches; humanistic approaches; cognitive behavior approaches; solution-focused and narrative approaches; developmental art therapy; expressive arts therapy and multimodal approaches; and so on. No real distinction is made among these "philosophies" as to which might be best—it appears to be a matter of taste and choice.
