Edited by:


August 2015 | 224 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Drawing on new paradigms and evidence-based discoveries in neuroscience, narrative psychology, and creativity theory, this text explores the beneficial role of expressive arts within a recovery perspective. A framework of practice principles for the visual arts, creative writing, music, drama, dance, and digital storytelling is addressed across a number of settings and populations, providing readers with an accessible overview of techniques taught in counseling programs in the U.S. and abroad.
