The Handbook of Art Therapy in Palliative and Bereavement Care offers a multicultural and international perspective on how art therapy can help individuals, groups, families, communities, and nations facing death and dying as well as grief and loss.

Over 50 art therapists from around the world write about the transforming power of art therapy in the lives of those facing terminal illness, dementia, loss, and grief, and offer practical descriptions and techniques for working with adults and children to guide professionals, including those new to using art therapy and creative approaches in end-of-life care services. Readers will also find examples of work with groups, families and individuals. This extensive resource reflects the most current research while also covering various materials and methods, unique populations, professional care and development, and community engagement.

This international handbook is essential reading for arts therapists, social workers, medical personnel, faith leaders, and psychologists interested in a collaborative and accessible approach to working with patients and families affected by loss.
