It can be difficult to be spontaneous during every art therapy group. It is helpful to have a resource full of creative and inspiring ideas that can be utilized as needed. This broad-ranging collection of projects injects variety into art therapy sessions. A Practical Art Therapy is written in an easy-to-read format that is filled with practical creative experiences for therapists to use with individuals and groups. Chapters cover various media and methods, including murals, collages, sculpture and drawing, making it easily accessible for even the busiest therapist.

The author suggests ways of expanding art-making activities, such as drawing to music and creating personal logos.
