Description : Museums are expanding the social role they play in their community through wellbeing initiatives. Although art therapy programs are an emerging trend in the developing museums and health field, and are known to positively influence wellbeing, research is lacking regarding the cultivation and holistic impacts of emotional wellbeing. The purpose of this research study was to examine whether, and in what ways, museum-based art therapy programs cultivate emotional wellbeing. This qualitative case study investigated 3 open group, single-visit art therapy programs. Data were collected through direct observations, semi-structured interviews with program facilitators, and document analysis. The findings suggest that museum-based art therapy programs can cultivate emotional wellbeing, and that they do so in three main ways: 1) program goals that emphasize wellbeing; 2) viewing and discussing art in the gallery, allowing verbal expression of thoughts and feelings; and 3) art-making, allowing artistic exploration and expression of emotions. Further, benefits of the programs studied here included: 1) health and wellness outcomes as related to a general sense of emotional wellbeing, 2) socialization and increased feelings of joy and acceptance, and 3) experiencing and regulating specific emotions. These findings suggest museum professionals and art therapists can expand upon the spectrum of positive emotions to further impact participants' wellbeing beyond physical or mental health.

Description : Outsider art, traditionally the work of psychiatric patients, offenders and minority groups, and art therapy have shared histories of art created in psychiatric care. As the two fields grow, this book reveals the current issues faced by both disciplines and traces their shared histories to help them build clearer and more coherent identities. More often than not, the history of art therapy has been tied to psychological and psychiatric roots, which has led to problems in defining the field and forced boundaries between what is considered 'art' and what is considered 'art therapy'. Similarly, the name and identity of outsider art is constantly debated. By viewing art therapy and outsider art through their shared histories, this book helps to alleviate the challenges and issues of definition faced by the fields today.

Description : Art therapy-based programs could open the doors of the museum to another population of visitors with disabilities, particularly those suffering from mental illness and in need of healing and wellness. The above statement serves as the core of this thesis with the ultimate goal to analyze and research the place of art therapy in a museum setting. Investigation of existing literature, interviews with professionals, and case studies, reveal the ways in which art therapy can be facilitated in a museum setting in order to better reach this population. Furthermore this thesis explores how collaboration between museum educators and art therapists can be mutually beneficial with an open exchange of information, techniques, and evaluation. Finally, the Rubin Museum is examined as a potentially ideal setting for a museum-based art therapy program. This thesis highlights the advantages along with any potential drawbacks of incorporating art therapy in museum galleries. In that regard, readers should be aware that an art therapy program based in a museum environment, while advantageous for visitors, should also be approached with caution. Both art therapists and museum education professionals must take the time to properly plan and work together in the execution of these programs to ensure the best results for visitors.

Working internationally with diverse groups of young people grappling with various forms of trauma, 30 contributing therapists share their processes, informed by current understandings of neurobiology, attachment theory, and developmental psychology. In addition to guiding principles and real-world examples, also included are practical directives, strategies, and applications. Together, this compilation highlights the promise of healing through the creative arts in the face of oppression.

Description : Deinstitutionalizing Art of the Nomadic Museum explores the possibility of the "nomadic museum" to facilitate social and political resistance through engagement with critical art practices and imagery. Grounded in a decade-long art therapy project in a contemporary art museum setting, this book offers a theoretically rich conceptualization of this experience. The text establishes an institutional critique of both the dominant psychopathology discourse and the instrumentalizations of art practices. Innovative in its approach, the results are analyzed in the framework of subjects such as hegemony-subalternity, subjectivity, resistance, the nomadic, critical art practices, narratives and minor language, deinstitutionalization, anti-psychiatries as well as institutional therapy. With a special focus on Latin America, international artists' writings and works are intersected with the thoughts of curators and museum decision makers. The inevitable connection of the arts with social and political fields is highlighted, enabling the exploration of the intersections of art, critical analysis, social science, psychoanalysis, and political philosophy. This text will be of great interest to graduate and postgraduate students, academics, researchers, libraries and museums curators in the fields of art therapy, psychoanalysis, contemporary art, social & cultural anthropology, and political philosophy.

Description : Object-Based Learning and Well-Being provides the first explicit analysis of the combined learning and well-being benefits of working with material culture and curated collections. Following on from the widely acclaimed Engaging the Senses, this volume explicitly explores the connection between the value of material culture for both learning and well-being. Bringing together experts and practitioners from eight countries on four continents, the book analyses the significance of curated collections for structured cultural interventions that may bring both educational and well-being benefits. Topics covered include the role of material culture in relation to mental health; sensory impairments; and general student and teacher well-being. Contributors also consider how collections can be employed to positively address questions of identity and belonging relating to marginalisation, colonialism and forced displacement. Object-Based Learning and Well-Being should be a key first point of reference for academics and students who are engaged in the study of object-based learning, museums, heritage, health and well-being. The book will be of particular interest to practitioners working in higher education, or those working in the cultural, heritage, museums and health sectors.

Description : Art museums are at a point where they are fighting to regain relevancy within their communities. One strategy to address this is by better understanding visitor engagement to promote important, exciting, and personal interactions with art objects. As seen from personal experiences as a museum educator, museums have the potential to create meaningful experiences with art. Art therapists also possess the tools to foster powerful encounters with art, and potentially for a new population of museumgoers. This has led to a new, but growing, collaboration between art therapy and art museums. The current study examines the perceptions of art therapists on the use of art museums in art therapy practice. Relevant literature is included in this thesis to provide a brief theoretical background on the development of art museums and museum education in the United States and the ways in which art museums are integrating It was hypothesized that there are already established programs happening in art museums that resemble art therapy practice as well as an openness among art therapists to explore this new territory in art therapy. Through an online survey, 100 credentialed art therapists currently practicing in the United States provided responses to questions regarding art therapy programs occurring in art museums. The survey explored their openness to incorporate art museums in their work, the potential benefits and limitations of this type of work, and resources needed in order to pursue the integration of art museums into art therapy practice. Ultimately, it was found that while the majority of the surveyed art therapists have not utilized art museums in their work with clients, there is a willingness to incorporate art museums into their practice in the future. However, while surveyed art therapists showed an interest in using art museums in their art therapy work, many prefer to do so independently with little collaboration with museum staff. In order for clients to gain the most impactful experiences from art museums, partnerships between art therapists and museum staff are strongly suggested so that resources can be maximized and broadened. By working together, art museums have the potential to become innovative centers for self-discovery, connection, and healing.

Description : Art in Chicago shows the stages of developing community-integrated art therapy programs through the use of museums, galleries, and art centers with clients from Anixter Center, a day program for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Through examining the development of the Americans with Disabilities Act, advancements in therapeutic methods in Europe, the disparity between the amount of museum education programs in New York and Chicago, and examples of museum and gallery-based art therapy groups, this thesis advocates for the cultivation of community-based, person-centered creative art therapy programs as the demand for more integrated jobs, programming, and housing grows for people with disabilities.

Description : Fostering Empathy through Museums features fifteen case studies with clear take-away ideas, and lessons learned by vividly illustrating a spectrum of approaches in the way museums are currently employing empathy, a critical skill that is relevant to personal, institutional, economical, and societal progress. The need is rapidly growing for empathy to serve as a lens through which we find our purpose and connection in a complex world. This demand brings with it an appetite to cultivate it through safe and trusted platforms. Museums are uniquely equipped to undertake this important mission. This book will help museum staff and leadership at all levels working at a variety of museums (from animal sanctuaries to art museums, from historic house museums to children's and science museums) to better understand the multitude of ways how empathy can be cultivated, and employed in museum setting. Fostering Empathy through Museums will provide inspiration, examples, and lessons learned from a balanced spectrum of museums currently employing empathy in museum setting: as an educational tool to better connect their content with the audience, as an integral element of a museum's institutional values and behavior, and as a phenomenon that is worthy of exploration on its own and as an intentional outcome. This publication provides museum professionals as well as formal and informal learning educators to receive an overview of the variety of approaches to empathy in museums, and to create a shared language and methodologies that could enable them to utilize and nurture empathy as a "shared vision" that would serve not only their organizational mission, but also the greater good. Empathy can be a tool, or an intentional outcome depending on the institution’s objectives. Regardless of the choice, the ideas presented in this book are intended to inform and inspire institutions to unlock exciting possibilities in the areas of improved visitor experience, creative community partnerships, and contribution to social progress by bringing empathy to public discourse through institutional strategies, exhibitions, experiences, and programs. The book also provides ideas for future strategies where empathy is considered as a "shared vision" by museums, and a product of a museum experience that might lead to positive social impact.

Description : The field of art therapy is discovering that artistic expression can be a powerful means of personal transformation and emotional and spiritual healing. In this book, Shaun McNiff, a leader in expressive arts therapy for more than three decades, reflects on a wide spectrum of activities aimed at reviving art's traditional healing function. In chapters ranging from "Liberating Creativity" and "The Practice of Creativity in the Workplace" to "From Shamanism to Art Therapy," he illuminates some of the most progressive views in the rapidly expanding field of art therapy: • The "practice of imagination" as a powerful force for transformation • A challenge to literal-minded psychological interpretations of artworks ("black colors indicate depression") and the principle that even disturbing images have inherent healing properties • The role of the therapist in promoting an environment conducive to free expression and therapeutic energies • The healing effects of group work, with people creating alongside one another and interacting in the studio • "Total expression," combining arts such as movement, storytelling, and drumming with painting and drawing

During this period, art therapy training programs proliferated, so that some benefited from newly-established formal art therapy education. Others had been working in related areas, such as art and psychology, and moved into art therapy in the early 1970s. In their various venues of influence, the authors presented here are highly accomplished visionaries whose dedication to the development of art therapy has been remarkable. Through their chapters, these "architects of art therapy" chart the development of an important mental health profession; they serve as an inspiration for those involved in art therapy today and for generations of art therapists to come."--BOOK JACKET.
