Supervision in the Arts Therapies

Series Editor: Joy Schaverien

This innovative series comprises five edited volumes, each focusing on one of the arts therapies — art, music, drama, dance or sandplay — and reflects on the dynamic nature of the presentation of that art form in supervision.

Supervision in the Arts Therapies Series makes a timely contribution to the literature and will be essential reading for experienced practitioners and students of the arts therapies as well as psychotherapists and other professionals engaged in supervision.

This splendid series breaks new ground in its depth, breadth and scope … With each volume, the reader is invited to imagine, explore, and reflect on the expressive qualities of a particular art form in clinical supervision, turning special attention to art, music, dance, drama and sandplay through contributions by leading experts from different parts of the world. These five volumes will make a lasting contribution as essential reading for supervisors and supervisees across the psychotherapies.” — Joan Chodorow.


This splendid series breaks new ground in its depth, breadth and scope, guided by Joy Schaverien’s recognition that the time is right for a comprehensive, multi-faceted study of supervision in the arts psychotherapies. With each volume, the reader is invited to imagine, explore, and reflect on the expressive qualities of a particular art form in clinical supervision, turning special attention to art, music, dance, drama, and sandplay through contributions by leading experts from different parts of the world. These five volumes will make a lasting contribution as essential reading for supervisors and supervisees across the psychotherapies. The series also contributes toward a deeper understanding of the mentor-student relationship and the healing power of the arts. – Joan Chodorow, Jungian analyst and former President of the American Dance Therapy Association

This new series of Supervision in the Arts Therapies is both timely and necessary. Now that all the arts therapies are established as State Registered professions in their own right, there is a lack of resources which can support both the more advanced practitioner and the student. The writers of these individual titles are leaders in their respective fields both as researchers and practitioners. These publications make very important and innovative steps, and should be read by everyone in related fields of work. - Dr Sue Jennings, Consultant Dramatherapist and Supervisor
