While traditional "talk" therapies remain at the foundation of counseling, the use of expressive and creative arts in conjunction with these methods can often deepen the healing process as well as expedite diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. Integrating the Expressive Arts Into Counseling Practice is designed to provide readers with an understanding of the ways in which expressive arts counseling techniques can be productively integrated into the leading counseling modalities.
