Hrenko, Kathy D.; Willis, Robert
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v13 n4 p261-64 1996
Identifies common imagery created by psychiatric inpatients through the amusement park technique; demonstrates how the artwork serves to identify the psychodynamic concerns of the mentally ill substance abuser. Connections are examined relating patients choice of image, psychiatric diagnosis, and drug of choice. This technique offers promise for individual, group, and family art psychotherapy. (LSR)
