This timely book highlights the breadth of art therapy and underscores the adaptability and range of skills possessed by art therapists. Coles and Jury's collection of chapters expertly convey the unlimited potential of museums and galleries as optimal places for delivery of art therapy services, toward improved wellbeing and quality of life for as many people as can benefit. -- Donna Betts, PhD, Past President of the American Art Therapy Association and co-author of Art Therapy Research: A Practical Guide
At a time when cultural institutions are increasingly open to exploring their social value, this collection of highly original, reflective and beautifully written essays considers the increasingly productive intersection between museums, galleries and art therapy. In doing so, it opens up important new conversations, possibilities and ways of thinking about the museum's capacity to foster human connections, wellbeing and inclusion. -- Richard Sandell, Professor of Museum Studies, University of Leicester
