cover image for The Art Therapy Handbook

This chapter from The Handbook of Art Therapy, 4th Edition by Caroline Case, Tessa Dalley, and Dean Reddick explains the importance of a space with firm boundaries offering containment, security, calm and reflection.

It traces the history of art therapy, with its changing spaces from art therapy studios in early work in large hospitals, to the move to the community, to modern settings often in shared clinical rooms with other disciplines. This edition includes new contributions from contemporary art therapists working in prisons, eating disorder units, refugee camps and those involved in nature-based work.
