Making the Grade: Resources for Educating Others about Art Therapy and the Therapeutic Value of Art

With the academic year upon us, graduate students and educators alike might be interested in getting their hands on materials that can be used in class to introduce others to art therapy and the therapeutic value of artmaking.  The American Art Therapy Association has an online store that offers DVDs for such purposes.

 

These focus on the development of the profession of art therapy by highlighting the contributions of its founders and pioneers.  I’ve seen both (and was thrilled by the inclusion of my former professors!) and can recommend them to anyone who wants to learn more about the historical roots of art therapy.  No matter which one of these offerings you select to share with your class, you’ll be presenting an opportunity to learn from experts.  That’s an easy A+ for you!

 

With appreciation for the important work you do,
