A Review of the Principles for Culturally Appropriate Art Therapy Assessment Tools
Betts, Donna
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v30 n3 p98-106 2013
In an increasingly diverse society, and with the broadening scope of art therapy, the duty of art therapists to ensure responsible and appropriate assessment is ever more important. This article discusses considerations that are necessary for the successful adaptation and use of drawing-based assessments in cross-cultural and multicultural contexts. Examples from the literature of art therapy instruments that conform to established principles for cross-cultural psychological assessment are examined, and recommendations are offered to provide direction for their ongoing development.
