NY-0316 - Creativity Heals in an Uncreative Place: Fostering Art Therapy with Prison Inmates

Description

Art therapists who wish to work in prison believe that they operate within a structured and regulated system that restricts creativity and healing.

    2. Identify the various challenges an art therapist may have in facilitating creativity and healing in prison.
    3. Delineate at least three creative art therapy directives that are effective despite the restrictive environment.
