From the cover:
book is the product of the editors' collected submissions of work from
the art therapy community. The poems, works of art, and accompanying
essays presented herein are truths that have been experienced within
the art therapy context. Each of the contributing poets in this work
submitted three poems for consideration. Two art therapists were selected
to evaluate these poems and select ten poems to receive visual art responses.
Each poet's section begins with a biographical sketch and a picture
of the art therapist. A statement is given by each poet that serves
to anchor and give context to the poet's work. Preliminary analysis
of these writings suggest five modes of artistic inquiry. These modes
are self-exploration and reflection, documentation of therapeutic work,
a method of responsive interaction with clients, a form of spiritual
practice, and a way to clarify and contain the art therapist's feelings
that surface in the therapeutic work.Comments are included on motivations
for writing, inspiration, the significance of works in the text, and
how poetry writing is incorporated into their personal and professional
lives. Word Pictures: The Poetry and Art of Art Therapists
is an effort to give voice to the poetic underpinnings of an art therapist's
