Presence and Process in Expressive Arts Work

At the Edge of Wonder

Herbert Eberhart and Sally Atkins

What are the basic attitudes, values, and practices that are essential for effective work with the expressive arts? This book explores the answer to that question.
The authors examine in depth the concepts of 'presence' - a way of 'being' - and 'process' - an open and trusting way of working - in the professional helping relationship and in the making of art. They introduce readers to the premise of the 'uniqueness of persons' that underpins these ideas, and look at how to realize them in practice. Diverse experiences are also shared of using the arts in group and individual work in a variety of settings, from team building and education to counseling, psychotherapy and supervision.
