Introducing the concept of cultural humility, this guide offers a new perspective to the field of art therapy practice and theory. It explores cultural humility in art therapy research and assessment, clinical and community-based practice, social justice, self-care and pedagogy. The notion of cultural humility addresses the power differential and encourages individuals and institutions to examine privilege within social constructs. It emphasizes self-reflection and the ability of knowing one's self in order to allow the art therapist to appropriately interact with their client, whilst being mindful of their own bias, assumptions and beliefs. Each chapter ends with a reflective exercise. Offering practical guidance to this increasingly recognised concept, Cultural Humility in Art Therapy is essential to those wanting to move toward an unbiased social justice.
Cultural humility in our approach is particularly relevant for working with trauma
survivors, because empowerment and control provide the opportunity for clients
to feel safe in therapy. We need to be comfortable asking about and discussing ...

This book focusses on art therapy as a treatment of PTSD in both theory and practice. It includes an in-depth look at what PTSD is, how it develops, and how art therapists should approach and treat it, with a focus on furthering social justice. The chapters cover a wide variety of contexts, including adults at a rape crisis centre, veterans, children in group homes and patients at substance use facilities. The second section of the book includes invaluable practical strategies and interventions based on the author's decades of experience in the field. It also discusses more complex concepts, including the impact of avoidance in maintaining symptoms of PTSD, and considers how Acceptance and Commitment Therapy can guide art therapy interventions.

Foundations of Art Therapy Supervision serves as a reference guide for art therapists who have found themselves in supervisor roles without prior training and supervisees hoping to learn what to expect from the supervision relationship, and illustrates how to receive and provide clinical art therapy supervision. Written by two art therapists with over 35 years of collective supervision experience, this new resource includes a framework for providing effective supervision in the classroom and in the field, case studies and art-based supervisory exercises, and guidance for new professionals seeking certification or licensure. Chapters weave the authors’ supervision experience with a significant literature review, and feature explanations on how professional identities (art therapist, psychotherapist, counselor, supervisor, supervisee, administrator, educator, etc.) and personal identities (gender, race, sexuality, etc.) influence the supervisory and therapeutic relationships. This book will teach supervisees how to make the most of their experience while simultaneously providing a comprehensive reference for practicing supervisors.

Culturally Responsive Teaching and Reflection in Higher Education explores how postsecondary educators can develop their own cultural awareness and provide inclusive learning environments for all students. Discussing best practices from the Cultural Literacy Curriculum Institute at Lesley University, faculty and administrators who are committed to culturally responsive teaching reflect on how to create an inclusive environment and how educators can cultivate the skills, attitudes, and knowledge necessary for implementing culturally responsive curriculum and pedagogy. Rather than a list of "right answers," essays in this important resource integrate discussion and individual reflection to support educators to enhance skills for responding effectively to racial, cultural, and social difference in their personal and professional contexts. This book is as an excellent starting point or further enrichment resource to accompany program or institutional diversity and inclusion efforts.
This practice-led research study presents a triadic model of connectedness with First Nations foster children and their Indigenous caregivers in Canada.

This study was conceived as a part of a reconciliation process in Canada, which alludes to the journey of healing between the settlers and Indigenous people in a constructive manner (Gray- Smith, 2017). This practice-led research study presents a triadic model of connectedness with First Nations foster children and their Indigenous caregivers in Canada. The term triadic art therapy refers to the involvement of an interpersonal dyad in joint art-making sessions with an art therapist who is attending to their cultural connectedness as a third element in their relationship. This necessary focus on cultural relatedness challenges settler art therapists to reframe the Western construct of attachment with its Indigenous parallel, which is connectedness in the broadest sense of the word (Carriere & Richardson, 2009). The central construct of connectedness emerged from the study’s art-based research design that illuminated Indigenous culture through symbolic expression and story-telling. The researcher conducted the study in an Indigenous locale of northern Manitoba with four dyads of children (ages 4–8) and their nonbiological Indigenous parent or guardian who met in a short-term triadic art therapy program created for the research. Art-based research methodology enlightened different aspects of connectedness, including holism, culture, spirituality, nature, family, and the impact of colonialism in both past history and present reality. Additionally, the researcher incorporated anti-oppressive practice into the study design, emphasising the need for therapists to understand the meaning of the colonial history and impacts on current reality in Canada when working with Indigenous people. The historical issue of separating Indigenous children from their family and culture to place them in a residential school, and, more recently, to foster care is discussed and connected to the importance in triadic art therapy with respect to allyship, cultural humility, and awareness of ecocide. Equally important was to include Indigenous-based research, which brings in concepts of respect, reciprocity, and relationality (Wilson, 2008). The study also involved an Anishinabe helper who provided insightful and spiritual guidance to the therapist and the dyads and was a connection to local cultural traditions. The study concludes that when First Nations community members have opportunity to take responsibility for their healing processes and initiatives, they can bring about change.

Adult books are categorized by genre (i.e., fiction, mystery, science fiction, nonfiction). Along with bibliographic information, the expected date of publication and the names of literary agents for individual titles are provided. Starred reviews serve several functions: In the adult section, they mark potential bestsellers, major promotions, book club selections, and just very good books; in the children's section, they denote books of very high quality. The unsigned reviews manage to be discerning and sometimes quite critical.
