Aesthetic presence: The role of the arts in the education of creative arts therapists in the classroom and online.

Arts Psychother 2020 Jul 23;69:101668. Epub 2020 May 23.

Graduate Program in Drama Therapy and the Theatre & Health Lab at New York University, New York City, 10012, United States.

The authors contextualize this concept with examples of how attention to the use of aesthetic and multimedia strategies in the classroom and in the online learning environment may foster openness and connection, encourage flexibility, humor, critical thinking, and animate and facilitate conversations about emergent and emotionally difficult themes while increasing accessibility for different kinds of learners.

The goal of this model is to articulate how activation, reorganization, growth and reintegration of the self can emerge from bodymind processes activated by art therapy. It provides a framework for the conduct of research that will test the key theoretical mechanisms through which art therapy benefits clients. Read More

Poetry therapy, men and masculinities.

Arts Psychother 2012 Apr;39(2):102-106

However, the literature of poetry therapy does not fully explore what therapists need to know about men and masculinities in order to work with them. Read More
