Preface

Therapists creating a cultural tapestry: Using the creative therapies across cultures combines the editorial efforts of Dr. Charles E. Myers and myself. This text is a comprehensive work that examines the use of art, play, music, dance/movement, and drama in different cultures and with diverse client populations. The editors’ primary purpose is to explore how the creative therapies can be implemented in diverse cultures and in different countries. Renowned, well-credentialed, and professional creative art therapists in the areas of art, play, music, dance/movement, and drama helped write this collection. In addition, some of the chapters are complimented with photographs of client works of art or play. This book provides a rich tapestry on how the creative therapies can be used across cultures for issues such as depression, learning disabilities, and trauma to name a few. Of special interest are the chapters on supervision. Not only a tool for the creative art therapists, this informative book will be of special interest to educators, students, therapists, as well as people working in other parts of the world or with culturally diverse clients.
