Considering the latest advances and developments in the arena of digital media, this book explores current materials, methods and applications of digital technology in art therapy.

It looks thoroughly at the many potential uses and benefits of digital technology in art therapy practice, including the use of stop motion animation and therapeutic light painting photography. A worked example of how digital art therapy can be used in the treatment of traumatic brain injury is also included. The book explores innovative therapeutic uses of digital technologies such as gaming and virtual worlds. Contributions from experienced art therapists address professional and ethical issues, from the sensory qualities of digital media and their effects in practice, to identifying and using developmentally appropriate technologies. As art therapy programs increasingly recognize the importance of using digital media, this cutting-edge guide provides all the necessary knowledge to incorporate this emerging field into practice.


'Digital Art Therapy is an important, timely book. Finally, Rick Garner and the contributing authors have placed the digital platform where it squarely belongs: as a 21st century palette for today's art therapy consumers. It would behoove any art therapist to read this book and become educated on the digital apps and possibilities for using a digital platform as a vehicle for communication, recovery, and ongoing health.'
