Beyond Erasure: The Ethics of Art Therapy Research with Trans and Gender-Independent People
Zappa, Asha
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v34 n3 p129-134 2017
Trans and gender-independent clients, who often experience unnecessary pathologization when accessing mental health care, can benefit from art therapy because it offers practitioners and clients the unique potential to disrupt social hierarchies. Art therapy research, however, has often replicated social structures that oppress people from diverse gender backgrounds. I examine existing publications in art therapy and address the need to challenge social structures that have affected research and had a detrimental impact on the lives of trans and gender-independent clients.
