The Creative Therapist in Practice, Paperback / softback Book

The Creative Therapist in Practice Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

In The Creative Therapist in Practice Hillary and Bradford Keeney present a radically innovative approach to the practice of therapy.

Combining improvisational performing arts, action-oriented cybernetics, and ecstatic healing traditions, therapy is re-imagined as a creative transformative art. The book demonstrates the principles of creative therapy through numerous transcriptions of sessions conducted by the authors.

It guides practitioners in conducting a three-part therapeutic performance: beginning with therapeutic techniques that broaden the context, igniting a session to creatively "cook," and finally concluding with a creative prescription for change that can be incorporated into the client's daily living.

As well as tracing the historical development of creative therapy, chapters explore what is possible for the future of therapy when practitioners leave behind conventional models and theoretical interpretations.

Applying case examples of creative therapy to a wide range of presenting concerns, The Creative Therapist in Practice will be relevant to clinicians working across the field of mental health, including licensed psychotherapists, psychologists, and clinical social workers.

Filled with inspiring anecdotes, unique interventions, and fascinating case illustrations, it will benefit anyone looking to become more naturally improvisational and wake up the creative life force in their sessions.
