Therapeutic Aspects of Art Education.
Lowenfield, Viktor
American Journal of Art Therapy, v25 n4 p111-46 May 1987
Recognition of the handicapped child's isolation from the environment is the basis for creative art therapy across handicapping conditions (physical disabilities, mental retardation, emotional disturbance, deafness, Blindness, speech impairment, cerebral palsy). Detachment may be overcome by self expression through drawings, paintings, and sculpture; sensory experiences improve self-concept and release inhibitions. (JW)
