Skills for Creative Arts Therapists
Being able to listen to clients and
talk with them in simple, focused ways are essential skills. The value of training
in the creative arts therapies can be greatly enhanced by integrating counselling
skills into the development of best practice. Employers in health and social
services particularly welcome practitioners who can contribute knowledge of
different ways of working to multi-disciplinary teams.
This book provides creative arts therapists, in training and in practice, with a practical and accessible introduction to counselling skills, and describes how the different ways of working may be woven together.
THE AUTHORS, both experienced practitioners in their respective fields, also include an invaluable discussion of frame, boundary issues and therapeutic presence.
