With an international focus, this book considers how race and culture can impact the practice of art therapy and how art therapists can work effectively with clients belonging to cultures different to their own.
Drawing on her experience working in post-Apartheid South Africa, the author gives practical guidance on how to overcome resistance to the therapeutic process, misunderstandings, and other barriers, such as language difficulties. With illuminating case studies, the book covers specific challenges that can come up in different countries, including the UK, US and beyond, as well as how to handle very practical issues, such as working with an interpreter.
