Providing theory and practical interventions, this book is the perfect companion to creative arts therapy students and professionals who wish to work with the LGBTQ community and the unique challenges that sexual minorities, transgender and gender non-conforming (TGNC) clients face today. Considering ally development, unconscious bias and intersectionality, the book provides theory, case studies and practical guidance for working with this client group, as well as experiences emerging from within the LGBTQ and CATs community. The contributors cover a wide range of topics, from exploring sexuality and gender identity through portraiture to facilitating a music therapy group with transgender clients, and foster ally development in senior living communities through a multimodal approach. With research finding that people from the LGBTQ community are at increased risk of depression and anxiety, Creative Art Therapies and the LGBTQ Community provides indispensable guidance for therapists.

There is a distinct lack of art therapy literature on working with adults with autism spectrum disorders, and this book combats this dearth by looking at the theory and practice of working with this client group. With clinical case examples throughout, it provides ideas for practice and interventions for use in institutional and community settings. There is a useful focus on directives to help with specific concerns, for example college and job readiness, social skills, and adapting to independent living. The book also includes information on ASD itself and gives advice on developmental and neurological considerations to take into account when working with this client group.

Theorizing Transgender Identity for Clinical Practice

View: 468

Providing new approaches for exploring gender identity and expression, this book is ideal for clinical practice with transgender and gender nonconforming/diverse clients. Importantly, it moves beyond the medical model to advance an understanding of transgender subjectivity as a natural variation of gender in humans. The book deepens understanding of the developmental trajectory of trans and gender non-conforming individuals over their lifespan, before and beyond transition, by offering new theories on gender. Drawing on theories from a range of different fields including psychoanalysis, philosophy, neuroscience, consciousness studies, trauma therapy, sex therapy, gender theory, disability studies and trans studies, it illustrates how informed clinical practice can recognise the complexity of gender identity and expression. With chapters on the understanding of core gender through the Free Energy Principle, the foundations of gender in consciousness, a gender algorithm, trauma, mirroring, and sexual functioning, this book works to provide a superior method of clinical practice that can better serve trans communities and our understanding of gender across the population.

Music therapy professionals work with diverse population groups, and this book provides therapists, and those in training, with the tools to integrate understanding of different cultural and social identities into their practice. Topics addressed include heritage, age, location, identity and health beliefs, and how to understand the dynamics of the variety of different cultures which music therapists will encounter in the course of their practice. Each chapter is written by an expert on a topic of personal interest in music therapy, explored through a multicultural lens. The chapters include anecdotes, case studies, and practical activities to try, while encouraging the reader to reflect on their own identity as a music therapist. This book is essential reading for all music therapy professionals wanting to practice in a culturally-informed manner, and respect the needs, contributions and strengths of every client.

The first phase of this thesis project examines my experiences as a Queer clinician at Center on Halsted (COH), a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) community center in Chicago, IL. A thirteen-week art-based reflection on my work as an art therapy intern at COH was documented in a series of twenty-five mixed media art pieces that were displayed in the School of the Art Institute of Chicago graduate art therapy exhibition, Art of Connection, in the SAIC Sullivan Galleries. An exhibition of work entitled The Great Refusal: Taking on New Queer Aesthetics was on view in the same space prior to the opening of Art of Connection. This exhibit featured artworks that were created by LGBTQ artists, referenced Queer culture and relationships, or otherwise challenged mainstream artistic practices. The perspectives presented in The Great Refusal inspired me to explore the potential of art making to connect the narratives of Queer artists, including myself and my clients at COH. The second phase of my project involved an ethnographic investigation of contemporary LGBTQ-identified artists. I interviewed and collected artwork from eight artists to study the role of art making in their lives and learn about their motivations for making work. A review of literature on Queer Theory, Queer Aesthetics, and counseling with LGBTQ individuals guides my understanding of the layers of oppression affecting the LGBTQ population, the importance of community building, and the role of creativity in the identity formation of Queer people. This review offers the foundation for a discussion of the overlap between the work done in my individual and group art therapy sessions at COH, my personal art practice, and the artworks created by LGBTQ artists. In my efforts to traverse the boundaries between the therapeutic and art worlds, I find that Queer-identified people can use art making, whether in therapy or outside it, to connect with themselves and each other by creating new spaces and inventing alternate methods to share their personal narratives, express their desires, and critique the cultures that tend to ostracize them.

Art Therapy Practices for Resilient Youth highlights the paradigm shift to treating children and adolescents as "at-promise" rather than "at-risk." By utilizing a strength-based model that moves in opposition to pathology, this volume presents a client-allied modality wherein youth are given the opportunity to express emotions that can be difficult to convey using words. Working internationally with diverse groups of young people grappling with various forms of trauma, 30 contributing therapists share their processes, informed by current understandings of neurobiology, attachment theory, and developmental psychology. In addition to guiding principles and real-world examples, also included are practical directives, strategies, and applications. Together, this compilation highlights the promise of healing through the creative arts in the face of oppression.
