Review:
Art Therapy with Older Adults provides critical insight for art therapists to empower elders with creative potential. Including robust theoretical and practical examples of creativity and self-actualization, Dr Partridge, along with her older adult co-researchers, developed a much-needed art therapy theory. Through her work, including digital media and museums, Dr Partridge is revolutionizing how art therapy thinks about social empowerment, abilities, creativity, clinical practice, and research and with elders. -- Amy Backos, PhD, ATR-BC, Chair, Graduate Art Therapy Psychology, Notre Dame de Namur University Dr. Partridge exquisitely captures the power of art therapy illuminated by a spirit of empowerment and advocacy for elders. This is a much-needed and enlightened guide and framework for art therapists working with this wonderful population and whose wisdom is applicable to all art therapists seeking to improve venerable results for their clients. --Claudia Mezzera, Ph.D., LMFT, ATR, Adjunct Faculty, Notre Dame de Namur University
