Art and Science Evaluation Arts Therapy - 98 edition

Art and Science Evaluation Arts Therapy (ISBN10: 0398068747; ISBN13: 9780398068745)
ISBN13: 978-0398068745
ISBN10: 0398068747

Summary: This book is designed as both an introductory text and a handbook in evaluation and assessment in the emerging arts therapies. It will be useful both for students in arts therapies training programs and for practitioners in the field who want guidelines for developing and implementing evaluation programs. At present, there is a paucity of materials that correlate the theory and practice of the arts therapies with generally accepted procedures in evaluation. The first more section of the work deals with those fundamentals and principles that apply to all evaluation, qualitative as well as quantitative. This general treatment is followed by chapters that deal with specific approaches to evaluation: psychometric, clinical or intuitive; and behavioral. The implications for evaluation of the three major-philosophical orientations (psychodynamic, existential, and behavioral) are explained. The last section focuses on evaluation procedures in the individual nonverbal arts therapies. Existing procedures are reviewed and emerging trends are examined. The basic theme of the book is the interrelationship between the creative and the scientific approaches to evaluation. less
