Materials on Creative Arts (Arts, Crafts, Dance, Drama, Music, Bibliotherapy) for Persons with Handicapping Conditions. Revised.
American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, and Recreation, Washington, DC. Information and Research Utilization Center.
Intended as a resource guide for persons who include such subjects as arts, crafts, dance, and music in programs for the handicapped, resources are listed for printed materials, audiovisual materials, resource persons and organizations, and material and equipment suppliers. Brief literature reviews sum up the state of the art in the specific art forms and research trends in using art with the handicapped. Analysis of research shows emphasis on the basic rights of impaired, disabled and handicapped individuals to participate in creative arts activities as their interests presuppose them, and an end to the proliferation of program aids which provide specific program activities rather than an emphasis on program aids adapted for the general population. The major portion of the guide contains an alphabetical bibliography (often containing annotations) of over 1000 printed references organized into the following sub categories: creative arts, general sources; art, art therapy, arts and crafts; dance, movement, and dance therapy; drama, psychodrama, puppetry; music and music therapy; and poetry, bibliotherapy, creative writing, photography. References are indexed by both program area and handicapped condition. Thirty nine aids, a representative sample of cassettes, records, films, videotapes and other audiovisual materials are listed alphabetically by record or film, tape, or multimedia category. Resource people, associations, and organizations are listed with names and addresses, as are equipment and materials suppliers for the following categories; art materials, ceramics, craft supplies, jewelry craft, leather craft, painting, weaving, and phonograph records.
