Positive Art Therapy Theory and Practice outlines a clear, systematic approach for combining positive psychology with art therapy's capacity to mobilize client strengths; induce engagement, flow and positive emotions; transform perceptions; build healing relationships and empowering narratives; and illuminate life purpose and meaning. Woven throughout are clinical illustrations, state-of-the-art research, discussion questions, and reflections on how therapists can apply this approach to their work with clients, and their personal and professional development. The book also includes a comprehensive list of more than 80 positive art therapy directives, a robust glossary, and lists of strengths and values. Written in an inviting and amusing style, this manual is both entertaining and practical-an invaluable tool for any practitioner looking to apply the most current theory and research on positive psychology and art therapy to their clinical practice.
