Edith Kramer is one of the pioneers in the field of art therapy, known and respected throughout the world. This collection of papers reflects her lifetime of work in this field, showing how her thoughts and practice have developed over the years. In these papers she considers a wide spectrum of issues, drawing together her thoughts on art, art therapy, society, ethology and clinical practice and placing art therapy in its social and historical context. Drawing on examples from her considerable personal experience as an art therapist, Kramer illustrates her conviction that making is central to the practice of art therapy, challenging those art therapists in the field who use art as a toll for more verbal psychotherapeutic practice.
