The DO ART Model: An Ethical Decision-Making Model Applicable to Art Therapy
Hauck, Jessica; Ling, Thomson
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v33 n4 p1-6 2016
Although art therapists have discussed the importance of taking a positive stance in terms of ethical decision making (Hinz, 2011), an ethical decision-making model applicable for the field of art therapy has yet to emerge. As the field of art therapy continues to grow, an accessible, theoretically grounded, and logical decision-making model is needed that will reduce ambiguity. This article introduces the DO ART model, a model that can be used in the practice of art therapy as well as in a range of counseling and therapy practices. The model uses an easy-to-remember mnemonic device and, by applying the model, art therapists can be more confident in taking ethical action when ambiguous dilemmas emerge in their practice.
