Art Therapy for Social Justice : Radical Intersections
Art Therapy for Social Justice seeks to open a conversation about the critical intersection of social change and social justice in private and public art therapy spaces. By moving the practice of art therapy beyond standard individualized treatment models, this informative new resource aims to promote scholarship and dialogue that opens boundaries to envision approaches that are culturally sensitive with a focus on antiracist, feminist, and emancipatory movements. In particular, specific programs are highlighted that have effectively used art-based practices to promote change by drawing attention to social inequities rooted in power, privilege, oppression, and discrimination.
