About this title


Organized into two major sections, this book opens with a detailed account of the origin and rationale of art therapy. The author underscores the need for a new model of intervention, describes the advantages of visual forms of cognition, discusses general system theory and the field of cybernetics, delineates several existing models of art therapy, and outlines the essential features of the psychocybernetic model-a model combining the verbal-analytic and the visual-imagistic symbol systems. The second section then focuses on implementation of the model and the four steps of the therapeutic process-unfreezing, doing, dialogue, and ending and integrating. A number of specific techniques to promote visual cognition are suggested and practical matters including the qualifications necessary for the practice of this intervention model, as well as the time, space, and art materials required are presented. A discussion of the scope and effectiveness of the psychocybernetic model closes the text.
