The practice of contemporary art therapy involves reflection on multiple philosophical, theoretical, and practice models, and is often dependent on a range of specific settings or populations. Yet, until now, the diversity of the profession has not been brought together in a single text. The Wiley Handbook of Art Therapy resolves the issue by providing unsurpassed breadth and depth of coverage of the subject, through a collection of theoretical and research approaches to practice. The handbook also explores various research models and professional issues, and provides a survey of global perspectives.

There are nine sections, each focusing on a crucial aspect of the field. These include a general overview, materials and directives, developmental continuum, assessments, research, special populations, interdisciplinary relationships, international art therapy, and special and contemporary issues. The result is an authoritative, state-of-the-art collection of the latest research in art therapy. Its multidisciplinary approach makes it a comprehensive and invaluable resource for all those in this field.
