Demonstrates how non-verbal therapies such as art and music therapy, sandplay, psychodrama and storytelling can be used to aid the recovery of trauma victims.
Drawing on detailed case studies and research, leading contributors from a wide range of disciplines provide an overview of creative therapies and explain the benefits of these non-verbal approaches which are able to connect with parts of the brain that conventional therapy cannot. They also outline the potential applications for exploring traumatic experiences with a view to limiting patient distress.
The techniques discussed will be particularly useful for those working with children, families and groups, as well as expressive and specialized art therapists.
