Fast Food Art, Talk Show Therapy: The Impact of Mass Media on Adolescent Art Therapy
Potash, Jordan S.
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v26 n2 p52-57 2009
Electronic media provides rapid delivery and unlimited access to pictures, sounds, and information. The ubiquitous presence of techno-digital culture in the lives of today's adolescents may influence or contaminate the art therapy process. This article presents two case studies that illustrate how cyberspace entered into art therapy sessions and also how the process of art therapy empowered adolescent clients to transform pop culture images into personally meaningful ones.
