In addition to the terrific books Martin recommends, I would also suggest you read some books and articles by the women that pioneered the modern use of art therapy in the United States. Look for the works of Margaret Naumburg (the proponent of art as psychotherapy), Edith Kramer (still vibrant in her eighties, she has championed the use of artmaking with or without verbal interpretation as therapy), Harriet Wadeson, Helen B. Landgarten, Judith Rubin, and others you will encounter as you begin to look around. You might also like to take a look at Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association; it comes out quaterly and might be found in university libraries in schools that offer AT and in some large public libraries. You can even find the Association on the web, just search art therapy. If you can't find the books in the library, look online on both Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble (BN.com). If I can be of further help to you, you can reach me at VeenaCava@aol.com.
Good Luck and best wishes, Elissa
