Book Description

As serious research in and around expressive therapies flourishes as never before, this four-volume set from Routledge’s new Major Themes in Mental Health series meets the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of a rapidly growing and ever more complex corpus of literature. Edited by a leading scholar, the collection assembles foundational and canonical work, together with innovative and cutting-edge applications and interventions.

For novices, the collection will be particularly useful as an essential database allowing scattered and often fugitive material to be easily located. And, for more advanced scholars and practitioners, it will be welcomed as a crucial tool permitting rapid access to less familiar—and sometimes overlooked—texts. For both, Expressive Therapies will be valued as a vital one-stop research and pedagogic resource.
