Product Overview

"In this text Dr. Lynn Kapitan has focused her considerable intellect on the question of how art therapists can participate in meaningful research without abandoning their core identities as artists. In doing so she brings honor in equal measures to the rigors of academic inquiries and artistic sensibilities."---Bruce L. Moon. PhD. HLM, ATR-BC. LPC. Graduate Art Therapy Director, Mount Mary College, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"Dr. Kapitan draws from nearly two decades of experience as professor and editor to create a research manual that is sure to be a seminal art therapy text. This book is everything art therapy students and instructors of research need, in one volume. What other research book do you know of that you do not want to put down?"---Holly Feen-Calligan, PhD, ATR-BC, Associate Professor of Art Therapy, Wayne State University; Associate Editor af Art Iheraw Journal Hi the American Art Therapy Association

"Dr. Kapitan has performed a valuable service to the art therapy community by writing a book that has long been needed---a thorough and even-handed introduction to the topic. It will inform both students and practitioners and should stimulate more and better research in art therapy."---Judith A. Rubin, PhD, HLM, ATR-BC, Department of Psychiatry, University ol Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; author of The Art Therapy and Introduction to Art Iheraoy: Sources & Resources

"This enlightened and comprehensive book is a welcome addition to the literature of art therapy. For educators who teach research and for art therapists in the field who are contemplating undertaking a study, this is the text of choice!"---Frances F. Kaplan, MPS, DA. ATR-BC, Art Therapy Counseling Department, Marylhurst University, Dregen, former Editor of Art Therapy

"At long last! Kapitan's engaging writing style, articulate discussion of exemplars of good research, systematic chapter summaries, and strategies for writing for publication (there is no better resource) will provide inspiration and guidance to even the most hesitant art therapy researcher---student or professional."---Randy M. VICK, MS, ATR-BC, LCPC, Associate Professor of Art Therapy, The School of the Art Institote of Chicago

Introduction to Art Therapy Research is a pragmatic text that introduces readers to the basics of research design in quantitative and qualitative methodology written in the language of art therapy, with particular attention to the field's unique aspects, current thinking, and exemplars from published art therapy research studies. This combination of a broad, standard approach to research design plus art therapy's particular perspective and major contributions to the subject make the text suitable for courses in introductory research, survey of art therapy history and literature, art therapy assessment, and ethics. The book includes strategies for evaluating research reports and writing for peer-reviewed publication, features that make the text of special value to students, practitioners, doctoral candidates, and academics writing for publication.
