On Photography: Uses in Psychotherapy.
This paper introduces and defines photography, presents an overview of its applications, and shows how photographs can be used adjunctively as both artifacts and metaphors. Examples are given to demonstrate the usefulness of pictures in gathering information about a client's world, taking a history, formulating a diagnosis, and creating intervention strategies. Photographs are considered as stimulus materials and are described as an adjunct to verbal therapy, along with examples of the effectiveness of this approach. A phototherapy bibliography is also provided. (Author/JAC)
