About this title


<p>For decades, art therapy has proved to be a&nbsp;practical treatment for veterans and other military populations suffering from trauma. <i>Art Therapy with Military Populations </i>provides an in-depth overview of both the theoretical and historical bases of art therapy with these groups while also chronicling the latest trends in treatment and the continued expansion of treatment settings. Edited by an art therapist with over 25 years&#x2019; experience working with the military and including chapters by a variety of seasoned and innovative clinicians, this comprehensive new volume provides professionals with cutting edge knowledge and interventions for working with military service members and their families. Available for download are employment resources for art therapists who would like to work in military settings, a bonus chapter, historical documents on establishing art therapy, a treatment objectives manual, and resources for art therapists. </p>


<p>&quot;Paula Howie and her collaborators have created an absolutely wonderful book. It is truly a first, filling a major gap in the art therapy literature. It is so thoughtfully conceived and well written that it is also a fascinating read. Scholarly, yet engaging, this book is a major contribution to all those concerned with the mental health of the servicemen and women who risk their lives to protect us and whose scars deserve our utmost healing efforts.&quot;<br /><b>Judith A. Rubin, PhD, ATR-BC</b>, President, Expressive Media; Professor, University of Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Center; author, <i>Child Art Therapy, Artful Therapy, Art Therapy Has Many faces, Introduction to Art Therapy</i></p> <p></p> <p>&quot;Howie and renowned authors come together in this remarkable book to illuminate the efficacy of art therapy in improving the lives of veterans and their families. No other volume presents as compelling a case for the necessity of art therapy for soldiers. It encourages the highest standards of professional competence and includes essential information for administrators related to expansion of access to art therapy services. Through the lens of history and grounded in theory, it is an original contribution to the literature in addressing the unique needs of veterans.&quot;<br /><strong>Donna Betts</strong>,<b> PhD, ATR-BC, </b>President, the American Art Therapy Association; Associate Professor and Research Director, George Washington University Art Therapy; award-winning author and researcher</p> <p></p> <p>&quot;In this groundbreaking book focusing on art therapy with military populations, Paula Howie and selected authors<i> </i>address historical and contemporary treatment of service-related trauma. Various art therapy approaches&#x2015;including art-based directives, open studio practices, and gallery exhibitions&#x2015;are discussed. Ultimately, it is the fundamental nature of art therapy, core to which are individuals engaged in creative processes in protected environments and witnessed by art therapists, that is at the heart of this worthy addition to art therapy literature.&quot;<br /><b>Linney Wix, PhD, ATR-BC, </b>Professor Emerita, Art Education, University of New Mexico; author, <i>Through a Narrow Window: Friedl Dicker-Brandeis and Her Terez&iacute;n Students</i></p> <p></p> <p>&quot;Ms. Howie and colleagues offer an informative and moving book that reveals and deeply respects art therapy; the men, women and families who participated in these interventions; and the dedicated personnel who provided their care. The historical dimension of the development of art therapy, alongside the narratives about the conflicts in which the military personnel served, add substance to the case presentations. Having worked at Walter Reed Army Medical Center during that time, the manuscript is a strong reminder of the healing power of creativity.&quot;<br /><b>Nancy B.
