Where Analysis Meets the Arts: The Integration of the Arts Therapies with Psychoanalytic Theory
This book provides the reader with a theoretical framework that considers how psychoanalysis can enrich the clinical application of the arts therapies. Five specialist arts therapies used in contemporary psychotherapy are examined: drama, psychodrama, art, dance movement and music. Although the contributors represent a variety of orientations and practices, it is the theme of integration which makes this book most stimulated and original, demonstrating how both psychoanalysis and the arts therapies may benefit from a meeting of minds. Contributors: Jeremy Holmes; Joy Schaverien; Mary Levens; Marina Jenkins; Paul Holmes; Kedzie Penfield; Helen Odell-Miller; Jocelyn James; Yvonne Searles; and Isabelle Streng.
