Minding Our P's through Q's: Addressing Possibilities and Precautions of Community Work through New Questions
Elmendorf, Dana
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v27 n1 p40-43 2010

A series of self-reflective questions posed by community-based practitioners at a 2008 gathering sponsored by the Maryland Institute College of Art offers valuable guidance to art therapists working outside traditional therapeutic settings.
