Techniques of Adolescent Art Therapy.
Riley, Shirley
An art therapist working with disturbed adolescents discusses approaches toward dealing with their resistance to treatment. She explains that the method which seems most successful is one that accepts resistance as developmentally appropriate and she suggests that the resistance should be joined rather than interpreted as such. Other suggestions made include preparation for group art therapy by stressing the use of art as an expressive vehicle in family or individual sessions; use of metaphorical communication in directives; and pictorially working through the adolescents' morality and criticism of adults.
