Star, Katharina L.; Cox, Jane A.
Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, v3 n4 p373-382 Dec 2008
Couples and family counselors have a long history of using creative techniques with their clients. Counselors can use creative arts to help clients express deep emotions, gain self-awareness, and move toward individual and family goals. There are numerous ways in which counselors can incorporate creative strategies in their work with couples and families. This article provides an overview of the creative technique of phototherapy, which uses family photos and home movies to explore family dynamics. An illustrative example is provided.
