Art Therapy in Private Practice: Theory, Practice and Research in Changing Contexts

As perspectives on private art therapy practice evolve, this book provides an overview of the range of approaches, clinical settings, ethical issues and professional considerations when working outside of the formal structures of publically-funded services.

An essential guide for art therapy students and experienced practitioners moving into private practice, it considers the impact of a private context on theory, practice and research. The book features contributions from art therapists with extensive experience in both private practice and public services and gives practical advice on potential difficulties, such as managing relationships with fee-paying clients, self-promotion and maintaining boundaries when practising from home.
