About this item

This book outlines a nature-based approach to expressive arts therapy, providing a theoretical foundation for professionals who use the expressive arts and nature to facilitate learning and promote healing. They organize the book within a framework of a creative process outlined by the Appalachian Expressive Arts Collective, as they review the history and development of the fields of expressive arts and ecotherapy; the cultural and historical contexts of their ideas about art and aesthetics, and theories about the relationship of beauty, aesthetic response and responsibility, and practices of sustainability and how they contribute to personal and planetary well-being; theories from environmental science of systems and patterns of interconnection; theories of ecological philosophy; and theories from indigenous cultures. They end by reviewing and integrating these concepts into a nature-based approach to expressive arts and detailing how they can inform professional practice and personal lives.
