Foundations of Art Therapy Supervision serves as a reference guide for art therapists who have found themselves in supervisor roles without prior training and supervisees hoping to learn what to expect from the supervision relationship, and illustrates how to receive and provide clinical art therapy supervision.
Written by two art therapists with over 35 years of collective supervision experience, this new resource includes a framework for providing effective supervision in the classroom and in the field, case studies and art-based supervisory exercises, and guidance for new professionals seeking certification or licensure. Chapters weave the authors’ supervision experience with a significant literature review, and feature explanations on how professional identities (art therapist, psychotherapist, counselor, supervisor, supervisee, administrator, educator, etc.) and personal identities (gender, race, sexuality, etc.) influence the supervisory and therapeutic relationships.
This book will teach supervisees how to make the most of their experience while simultaneously providing a comprehensive reference for practicing supervisors.
